Subject Re: Tomcat 5.5 on Windows Server 2003, HTTPS and tc-native
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2009 14:29:15 GMT
It looks like you have an extensive experience deploying Tomcat 5.5.x on Win
XP, SBS, Enterprise and Datacenter, so maybe you can tell me where the
option to use APR/tc-native is during the installation using the msi file?

Just wanted to share my experience, since the same issue has popped up
several times for over a year, but fine with me if you think I am an idiot
and the doc is perfect. I made an effort to subscribe to the list, post
something, but if you have an issue with that, fine.

Looks like the Jetty folks are less agressive. Lots of choices for a servlet
container out there.
