Hello Sir,
I wish to confirm one more thing.
The issue is SSL vulnerability. from the responses, i understood that i need to upgrade to
tomcat latest version. As per the team, it is recommended to go for Tomcat 5 in our environment.
my quesiton is:
Is this vulernability solved in tomcat 5 version?Do i need to perform some additional stuff
to avoid this vulnerability?Any modification to be done in server.xml file to avoid the SSL

regardsSunil C

You may as well do the job properly and upgrade to 6.0.20.

For you app? No changes should be required.

For your Tomcat configuration? Start with the clean configuration
provided with 6.0.20 and add any modifications you need. Be aware that
the config has changed in particular:
- the <Logger> element is no longer used
- Resource configuration has changed

See the docs for the details.
