Professional Apache Tomcat

What is this book about?
Tomcat is an open source web server that processes JavaServer Pages and Java Servlets. It can run as a
stand-alone server or be integrated with Apache. Like Apache, the core Tomcat program is relatively simple,
but there are many enhancements that can be added to make it much more complex.
What does this book cover?
You will learn how to integrate Tomcat with the Apache HTTP server (and the situations when you should
and you shouldn't), how to set up database connectivity through JDBC, and how to ensure your web
applications are secure.
This book will provide you, the server administrator, with the necessary knowledge to install and configure
Tomcat, as well as many of the most popular enhancements to the Tomcat package. It will help you plan the
installation and possible growth options of your site.
Here are just a few of the things you'll find covered in this book:
- Tomcat 3.x, Tomcat 4.0.x, and Tomcat 4.1.x
- The Tomcat architecture
- Tomcat installation and configuration
- Apache and Tomcat integration using the AJP and WARP connectors
- Tomcat security with SSL, realms, and the Java Security Manager
- Shared Tomcat hosting, server load testing, and load balancing
- Managing and administering web applications
- JDBC with Tomcat
- Ant and Log4j
It will also cover some of the tools that can be integrated with Tomcat, such as Ant (for automatically
building web applications) and Log4J (for advanced logging).
Who is this book for?
This book is for professionals working with Java web applications. It assumes a certain knowledge of the JSP
and Servlet technologies, but only from an administrator's point of view. Knowledge of databases, XML,
HTML, networking, and general administrative techniques is also assumed.
