Subject Re: Consider support for the Servlet profile of JSR 196 (JASPIC) in Tomcat 7.0.x
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 19:22:16 GMT
Umm, a few years ago I was quite interested in implementing it for tomcat, but couldn't raise
any support over here.  I still think the geronimo-tomcat-jaspic integration could be adapted
to tomcat standalone pretty easily, although I don't think I'll have time to work on it.
