The Tomcat Expert community is a project sponsored by VMware SpringSource aimed to help improve enterprise adoption of Apache Tomcat. Over the past two years, we’ve put out nearly a hundred unique articles from our pool of experts to help users understand more about how Tomcat works and how you can use it more effectively to power business critical applications. We’ve covered new functionality in Tomcat 7, including posts on the jdbc-pool, parallel deployment, and the WebSocket implementation. We have also covered a number of other common questions ranging from the basic "Is Apache Tomcat an App Server?" to the detailed "How do I decide between mod_jk, mod_proxy_http, and mod_proxy_ajp?".
A new question we are hoping to answer for our community is, “How can I find quality candidates to help on my Tomcat deployment?” – and we aim to do this by offering the ability for employers to post available tomcat jobs, as well as the ability for members to find jobs and to apply for them directly from our community site.
Users will need to create a login account in order to access the job posting form. Users can post an unlimited number of jobs, however until a job poster earns enough karma, each job will need to be approved by a tomcatexpert administrators to ensure the job feed is filled with quality jobs. Jobs should be related directly to the configuration, management and operation of Apache Tomcat; however, the roles can go beyond the traditional system administration and web operations roles to include java or Spring developers, instructors, technical sales engineers, and software product or architect roles that depend on Apache Tomcat. Employers have the option to have TomcatExpert email candidate submissions which include links to the candidate’s TomcatExpert profile, or to be redirected to your company’s submission process.
