Thanks for posting. I hadn't ever heard of Tcat, though I tend to run a
vanilla Tomcat without even the "standard" webapps loaded, and we don't
do any instrumentation outside of our webapp, so I've never had occasion
to look into things such as Tcat.

I didn't realize that Tcat was a re-packaging of Tomcat... it sounded as
if your company was claiming that running Tomcat in an enterprise
environment required your product (in marketing-speak, of course).
Hence, the aspersions cast your direction.

That's a great description, Jason. Again, thanks for helping clear the air.
