Hi Paul,

just look at the Tomcat documentation on how you can install multiple
versions of Tomcat in parallel on the same Windows server. You do not
upgrade Tomcat, you install the latest version and then you drop you HP
webapps in the new container, provided you have configured it properly. In
fact, you can run both versions of Tomcat in parallel with the HP webapps
if you wish. I am doing this at will and I am also running a bunch of HP
web applications. You can also configure Tomcat to use whatever version of
Java you wish and again, you can have multiple versions of Java if needed.
