Blog : Apache Tomcat 7.0.39 released

posted by Stacey Schneider on March 27, 2013 07:39 AM

The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache Tomcat 7.0.39.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies.

This release contains a number of bug fixes and improvements compared to version 7.0.37. The notable changes include:

  • There have been multiple improvements in the bytes to/from characters conversion process. The core conversion process has been refactored to use the NIO APIs. This has resulted in a number of improvements including invalid UTF-8 byte sequences at the end of a series of bytes now trigger a conversion error rather than being silently swallowed. Errors detected in request URIs will be replaced with the replacement character (allowing the application to respond to the invalid URI as it wishes) and errors in request bodies will trigger an IOException. The use of the JVM provided UTF-8 decoder has been replaced by a better UTF-8 decoder derived from Apache Harmony. This improved decoder has earlier detection of error conditions and more closely follows the Unicode specification regarding the use of replacement characters.
  • The annotation scanning process now provides more information if the scan fails due to broken class dependencies. There is now enough information to identify the class(es) at fault. The JAR scanning process that supports annotation scanning has also seen multiple improvements and fixes includingthe exclusion by default of the Bootstrap class path from the scan.
  • Upgraded a number of Tomcat's dependencies including Commons Daemon to 1.0.14, Commons IO to 2.4 and Commons FileUpload to r1458500. A new dependency on Commons Codec was added to replace Tomcat's internal Base64 encoder/decoder.

Blog : Java 6 End of Life Impact for Apache Tomcat Users

posted by mthomas on January 30, 2013 09:08 AM

There has been some discussion on various forums and mailing lists about the End of Life for Java 6 and what it means for Apache Tomcat users. In response to these questions, we have put together this article that aims to summarize the key questions and give you some of the background and answers you need to plan how to best handle this transition in your deployments.

Here is a quick summary: If you want to run a supported version of Java—one with updates for bugs and security issues—then you will need to upgrade to Java 7. If this isn’t an option, you will have to purchase some form of support contract. Generally, upgrading to Java 7 will be the better long term option but the right decision for your business will depend on your circumstances.

What about Tomcat and Java—where are the risks?

For every Tomcat release, the formal build and testing is performed on the latest release of the minimum Java version required by the relevant specification. That means that the Tomcat 6 releases are built and tested with the latest Java 5 update and that the Tomcat 7 releases are built with the latest Java 6 update. There are also several continuous integration systems building and testing Tomcat with a variety of Java versions as well as all the local testing that the committers perform. In addition to all of this testing, the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) runs a number of services on Apache Tomcat—again using a variety of Java versions including the ASF Jira instance that runs on Java 7 and Tomcat 7. While I can recall several issues with running Tomcat on older, unsupported Java versions, I cannot recall a single reported problem that was traced to running Tomcat on a newer version of Java. Running Tomcat 6 or Tomcat 7 on Java 7 is very low risk.
