I quite like this book, not too terse and not too verbose. Useful as a reference book but with enough explanation to get you going if you're not familiar with the topic. Light years better than the online documentation but, given that the online documentation is often unreadable, that's not a particularly demanding benchmark. A useful and reliable guide.

Nitpick: Many examples are literally the content of files as shipped from rpm.so getting the admin application going required a bit of role name guesswork or a trawl through the the online docs.
Gives you the options on the configuring,connecting to db's/apache etc. Not really a tutorial, more of an ideas cookbook. Something I shall refer to as I demand more from Tomcat.
It is nice to have a concise text in one place on the subject.
