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.
