Apache 8 Tomcat Overview

Session Abstract:
Apache Tomcat 8 implements new versions of the Servlet, JSP and EL specifications as well as adding support for the new WebSocket specification. Work has also been done on refactoring a number of internal areas that will impact a number of Tomcat specific features. This presentation will provide an overview of the changes and new features introduced by both the updated specifications and the Tomcat specific changes. With release candidates of Tomcat 8 currently available, this session will enable attendees to identify the Tomcat 8 features of greatest interest and provide them with the information required to start planning their migration to Tomcat 8.

    Has the group moved? I went to our usual place, and a company is having an event there. Then I was top to try Summit 2 ... Here now ... No auditorium, and the only conference room is closed.

    Hi guys - I was happy to see this email. Not only is it an interesting topic, and that a highly qualified person is presenting it, but I'm in town next week (I have temporarily moved to Calgary, Alberta for a year - and just happen to be coming to Cleveland on business for a few days next week). See you there.
