Blog : Announcing New TomcatExpert Jobs Board

posted by Stacey Schneider on August 9, 2012 01:58 PM

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.

For Employers

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.

Ask the Experts : Tomcat 7 and Parallel Deployment

We are trying to deploy 2 versions of the same application on Tomcat 7 to test its parallel deployment features for our application.

Not meeting with success, I was looking for  a definitive guide for parallel deployment on Tomcat 7.

 

Our application is a JSP based application but we can have changes often.

asked by csaoin

question

The definitive reference for parallel deployment comes directly from the Apache Software Foundation: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/config/context.html#Parallel_deployment.

Additionally, Mark Thomas wrote a summary article explaining how this feature works on the Context Container and across clusters: http://www.tomcatexpert.com/blog/2011/05/31/parallel-deployment-tomcat-7.

Blog : New closeMethod for JNDI Resources

posted by mthomas on August 17, 2011 07:46 AM

Apache Tomcat 7 contains a number of new features around database connection pooling, which help administrators keep their application available and serving content, collecting customer information, and supporting their applications. The main one that has garnered a lot of attention is the new JDBC Connection Pool feature introduced by Filip Hanik last year. Another connection pool attribute not yet discussed here on TomcatExpert.com is the new closeMethod for speeding up the closing of JNDI resources that would otherwise be closed during garbage collection.

A Specific Requirement

This feature stemmed from a common challenge for applications that make use of database connection pools attached to databases with limited connections allowed. For instance, if a database allows 50 connections, and an application uses a connection pool of 50 connections, in theory everything should work. However, if the application is reloaded, the existing open connections in the old pool would not close until they have been garbage collected. So the new application connection pool while configured for 50 connections, could run out at 37 if the old connection pool had 13 connections open.

Blog : Mark Thomas Status Update on Apache Tomcat 7 Project

posted by Stacey Schneider on July 29, 2011 12:09 PM

13 months ago today marked the initial release of the Apache Tomcat 7 beta. Proving itself to be very backwards compatible with Apache Tomcat 6, Tomcat 7 is wealth of add-on features and bug fixes that purely builds on the success of Tomcat 6. Many of these features were not around 13 months ago, many of which we have covered here including:

Originally presented in the SpringSource S2F Forum in Amsterdam, Mark Thomas recorded a new update on the overall status of the Tomcat 7 project for the Tomcat Expert community. This update is slightly more current and gives good insight as to what is now in Tomcat 7 and what will be coming (and how to influence what gets worked on!). Some interesting points Mark brings up:
