Subject Re: tomcat 5. some basic questions

That depends mostly on your application. When we developed our app, some 
developers used 4.1.27 and other 5.0.16 (IIRC), and the app is 
compatible with both. I do not recall needing to make a special effort 
to keep compatibility. So you still may have hope ;-)

Main difference, in our case, was the place where we configured our 
connection pool: server.xml in one case, and context.xml in the other. 
Other than that, nothing impressive.
