5.0 out of 5 stars Review of tomcat bible 28 July 2005
This was one of the first books i browsed through on tomcat, and just but skinning it's contents i bought it.
Being newish to java and had to do my MSc project on a java web application i didnt really know where to start.
This book not only showed how to set up tomcat, but a detailed how to use ANT and JUNIT then proceeded to show how to build a web application which was very easy to follow.
Not only did the web applicatio make use of the MVC pattern but also completed part of it using jakarta struts.
In conclusion this book doesnt just show you how to set up the tomcate server, it shows build and deployment of web application using java

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tutorial and reference 2 Aug 2003
By Michael Geisler - Published on Amazon.com
It is always a wonderful thing to find an excellent technical reference that is also highly *readable* - the enthusiasm of the authors for the subject is obvious to the reader and their pragmatic approach most welcome.
Regardless of if you are an experienced developer or beginner, I believe you will find a wealth of information in this book to justify the purchase. (I found the sections on how tomcat manages classloading and security of particular interest).
I believe that if your primary development and deployment platform is tomcat then this book will be of great use. Although this book is somewhat Windows centric, those of us who use real operating systems (i.e. Unix based derivatives) will still find real value from this book.
The authors obviously have deep experience with the platform and
I can only highly recommend this book to anyone working with Tomcat

4.0 out of 5 stars Thorough coverage of Tomcat and related technologies 22 July 2003
By Jason Yip - Published on Amazon.com
Very thorough coverage of Tomcat including introductions to useful tools and technologies such as Ant, Struts, JBoss, log4j, Cactus, JMeter, etc.
I'm not really the type of reader that would read straight through Bible type books so the value is really more as a reference. There are a lot of online resources for Tomcat so I don't think the Tomcat Bible should be seen as a replacement so much as a complementary resource. Especially if you're coming in cold, there are a lot of good pointers to tools and technologies that you should follow up on.
I didn't expect thorough coverage of Struts given that this is the Apache /Tomcat/ Bible and not the Struts Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, excellent reference... 8 Oct 2003
By C. Enrique Ortiz - Published on Amazon.com
This is definitely a good book to have... I recommend it! It is a true *complete* reference to Tomcat. Pretty much all you need to know about Tomcat you can find in this book. In a nutshell, a useful book that I am constantly referencing... it is pretty comprehensive...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good into to Ant 1 Mar 2005
By Michael Sweeney - Published on Amazon.com
Chapters 2,5 and 7 were worth the price, as I managed to get Ant up and running, a timely digression as our Tomcat experiment evolves into a real production environment. I would suggest downloading the source, rather than trying to follow the authors' instructions on setting up your development environment (if you followed their directions, you would put your web directory under bible\tomcat\hello).

3.0 out of 5 stars A good effort, but this is no Bible of Apache Tomcat. 18 Jun 2003
By Stephane Larochelle - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a good effort. Unfortunately it is geared very much towards windows. I found myself on many occasions surfing the net to get the proper way of installing/modifying tomcat for linux as this book only gave windows instructions and "assumed" (falsely) that it would be somewhat identical for other OS. Fortunately the Internet was full of info on doing this on Linux, but a reference book on Tomcat should have covered it, specially when it calls itself the "Apache Tomcat BIBLE".
If you are a windows user and plan to use windows on your server, then this is a good book for you. For those of us who use Linux and other OS on their server... maybe another book would do better justice to Apache Tomcat.
