I skimmed the rest of the book after this, then put it down forever. I went out and bought Marty Hall's "More Servlets and JavaServer Pages", and I think you should too.
The main reason I purchased this book was because I wanted to be certain that my Apache driven Solaris box, responsible for virtual hosting several sites, was configured correctly to maintain several instances of the JVM for each customer. Chapter 9 Integrating the Apache HTTP Server is just plain funny. If you delete the "What is Apache" section along with the pictures, weak example and summary, the chapter is only a few paragraphs long! Zero help!
If you enjoy books that are essentially general overviews and contain remotely related content that can be better handled by other dedicated books, then this book is for you!
I just purchased "Professional Apache" by Peter Wainwright and was very impressed with the level of detail given by Peter. Buy it if you want REAL information regarding the configuration and management of Apache. I am still hunting for one of similar caliber for Jakarta-Tomcat!
I also got a lot out of the server.xml appendix.
I just don't understand the "just like the online doc comments."
Excellent! Useful book for beginners and advanced users.
Excellent starting point to learn configuring and using Tomcat.
Good reference book.
It's a well-written and well-organized book. It covers and touches most of the topics associates with tomcat like Integration with struts, Log4j, Apache Soap etc. You do not have to be familiar with tomcat or apache web server to read this book. Starting chapters even show, in detail, how to set up tomcat server. Advanced users can skip through these chapters.
The book is written for tomcat version 4.0, so even the reader familiar with earlier versions of tomcat can expect to find something new. Explanations of new features of tomcat like Security Realms (Chapter 5), embedding tomcat (chapter 6) and Persistent Sessions (chapter 7) are very good.
The book is very well organized and has lots of small examples and code snippets. So you can write and run what you are reading about (I always find this approach better). I would highly recommend this book to all levels of programmers looking to use tomcat and even those already using tomcat.
