New page:
TomcatTrackUs09 Sessions
Here are the proposals for the PMC (extracted for an email discussion):
Of course if we want to have a day of Tomcat we have to build a track that:
1 - Have an introduction (something like what Mladen (See below mturk) proposed).
2 - Have more details presentation on the new tech (Tomcat7, Servlet 3.0)
3 - Have a remainder of the existing new stuff (Bayeux, Comet, jdbc-pool, tomcat-lite).
4 - Have well known stuff, like admin/conf stuff, mod_jk/mod_proxy and clustering.

My idea was to give an 'Tomcat community overview' with some
directions where are we heading and something short about
what's cooking (Tomcat 7, Connectors, Security, etc...)

Audience should be both generic
(at least for the tech and community overview I plan to do)
and technical for an in-depth presentations offered by
Mark, Filip and Rainer.

Based on some users list feedback: I could either present on mod_jk (in
case there's no conflict with Mladen), or - thinking about André's
suggestion, I could give a "Reverse Proxies" talk.

That talk would be more for sys admins, not for developers, and would
explain the special situation a reverse proxy is in:

- Request Routing
- Loadbalancing/Stickyness procedures
- Changing URLs, Cookies, etc.
- Content rewriting
- AJP protocol
- Keep-Alive issues
- Resource issues (blocking)

etc. It would include examples from mod_jk, mod_proxy_*,
mod_substitute/mod_sed, mod_proxy_html (a module done by Nick Kew) and
if available then even the GSOC Tomcat reverse proxy.

I think it would be fun, doing a talk that is not directly related to
one single software component or project but more focused on a real-life
topic and solution ingredients.
Yes, for the two proposals coming from me (working titles):

- All you want to know about reverse proxies
- mod_jk in depth

Both of my talks are more directed to admins.
