Date Thu, 11 Jun 2009 08:23:45 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JeanFredericClere:

  Apache Tomcat 7.0 is a Servlet container for the Servlet 3.0 specification. One of the more
exiciting features in this new specification is the standard support for asynchronous servlet
processing. In this session we will take a look at the asynchronous servlet API, the reasoning
behind, its benefits and short falls. We will also take a look at the extensions and different
methods Apache Tomcat 7 provides to meet some of these short falls.

+  mod_proxy versus mod_jk. Clustering with HTTP Server as front-end.   [acus2009 440]
+ by Jean-Frederic Clere
+ Presentation — 60 minutes
+ Description
+ There is often the question among users what should I use: mod_proxy or mod_jk? Mod_jk looks
a kind of toolbox for integrating Tomcat application in web server and mod_proxy looks more
than a straight forward loadbalancer. This presentation will try to help to choose the best
module depending on the application structure. The goal of the two reverse proxy modules are
different therefore they will continue existing and exchanging features. Now everyone will
be able to choose the technology that fits their needs.

+  Using Tomcat-Native with Comet/Asynch call in Servlet 3.0   [acus2009 441]
+ by Jean-Frederic Clere
+ Presentation — 60 minutes
+ Description
+ Browsers and web servers are standards and the need for instantaneous data exchange has
grown. AJAX for example allows web clients to communicate "asynchronously" withremote web
servers. Comet is a Tomcat 6 feature that goes beyond AJAX and allow real asynchronous unidirectional
and bi-directional connections between client and server using the HTTPprotocol and Servlets.
Servlet 3.0 SPEC's are also providing asynchronous calls see what is possible do with them.
Tomcat-Native is a Tomcat sub-project that provides a non-blocking and very efficient SSL
connections. Tomcat-Native relies on the APR (Apache Portable Runtime) for Socket input/output
and use OpenSSL to make the cryptographic layers. Comparison of the performance of Tomcat,
Tomcat + APR and httpd.
