Subject tomcat-util.jar and catalina-util-xml.jar not found in tomcat 6.0 though they were in use in web-application developed on tomcat-5.x
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2008 22:04:49 GMT

Hi All,
 The application I've been using was developed on tomcat-5.5.17 which
configures a customized NTLMRealm class in server.xml under it's realm tag.
The related jar for developing this customized realm bundled in a jar under
server/lib and this utilizes server/lib/(tomcat-util.jar and
catalina-util-xml.jar) files.

Now, this application requires upgrade to tomcat-6.0.16 which doesn't have
tomcat-util.jar and catalina-util-xml.jar under it's lib directory though
other jars from server/lib (5.x) are found under lib (6.x) directory.

My question are,
1. Are the classes from tomcat-util.jar and catalina-util-xml.jar are not
supposed to be used with application deployed on 6.x release OR If it is not
so where can I find these jars?
2. By using tomcat-util.jar and catalina-util-xml.jar from tomcat-5.x
release with tomcat-6.x, the application works fine. Is this advisable to
just copy the jars from a previous release (5.x) to some current release? or
this may cause any issues ?

I suppose though not the web-applications it self but the customization of
configuration of tomcat, say using own NTLMRealm may require these utility

I 've searched on this issue on many forums/groups but couldn't find the
reason why these jars are not bundled with tomcat-6.x release.

I would appreciate any answers/comments on this.

Thanks and Regards,
