  This document describes the changes that have been made in the current
  beta release of Apache Tomcat, relative to the previous release.
  Bug reports should be entered at the bug reporting system for
  Jakarta projects at:

  Please report bugs and feature requests under product name "Tomcat 4".
  ----> UPCOMING CHANGE NOTICE:  In a future beta release of Tomcat 4.0, it
  ----> is likely that the default operational mode will be to run Tomcat
  ----> under a security manager (rather than the current default of not
  ----> using one).  This may necessitate editing the policy permissions
  ----> file ($CATALINA_HOME/conf/catalina.policy) if your web applications
  ----> require permissions that are not enabled by default (such as connecting
  ----> to network ports).  You are urged to test your applications with
  ----> Tomcat 4.0-b5 running under the security manager now, so that this
  ----> upcoming change will not be disruptive.  To do so, start Tomcat 4.0
  ----> with the command "$CATALINA_HOME/bin/ start -security"
  ----> (Unix) or "%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\catalina start -security" (Windows).

  Redeploying From a Web Application Archive:
  If you attempt to undeploy, then redeploy, an application from the same
  web application archive file URL (where the URL refers to an actual WAR
  file, not to a directory), the redeploy will fail with error "zip file is
  closed".  There appears to be a problem in the JDK's JarURLConnection class
  where JAR files are cached, even after they are closed, so that a request
  for a connection to the same URL returns the previous JarFile object instead
  of a new one.  As a workaround, you should do one of the following:
  * Change the URL of the web application archive each time you redeploy.
  * Deploy from an unpacked directory (on the same server) instead of from
    a WAR file (this is often more convenient in a development environment
  Tomcat 4.0 and XML Parsers:
  Previous versions of Tomcat 4.0 exposed the XML parser used by Jasper (the
  JAXP/1.1 reference implementation) to web applications.  This is no longer
  the case, because Jasper loads its parser with a new class loader instead.
  Keep the following points in mind when considering how to use XML parsers
  in Tomcat 4.0 and your web applications:
  * If you wish to make the JAXP/1.1 RI XML parser available to all web
    applications, simply move the "jaxp.jar" and "crimson.jar" files from
    the "$TOMCAT_HOME/jasper" directory to the "$TOMCAT_HOME/lib" directory.
  * If you wish to make another XML parser that is JAXP/1.1-compatible
    available to all web applications, install that parser into the
    "$TOMCAT_HOME/lib" directory and remove "jaxp.jar" and "crimson.jar"
    from the "$TOMCAT_HOME/jasper" directory.  It has been reported that
    Xerces 1.3.1 can be used in this fashion, but 2.x alpha releases
    can not be.
  * If you wish to use an XML parser (such as Xerces) in the WEB-INF/lib
    directory of your web application, this should now be possible, because
    of the modified JAXP 1.1 parser mentioned below.
  WARNING:  Tomcat 4.0 now ships with a modified version of the JAXP/1.1
  (Final) "jaxp.jar" and "crimson.jar" files in the "jasper" subdirectory.
  The "sealed" attribute has been removed from the manifest file for these
  two JARs, to avoid "package sealing violation" errors that were caused by
  them in a JDK 1.3 environment.  You MUST NOT replace these files with a
  different (or later) release of JAXP, unless that later release has had
  the sealed attribute removed, or you will encounter "package sealing violation"
  errors when trying to use a different XML parser in a web application.
  MOD_WEBAPP Connector:
  A new version of the Apache 1.3 side of the MOD_WEBAPP connector is included
  in this release, in the "connectors" directory.  It has not been tested
  heavily yet, so it should be considered experimental.
