Blog : Everything Apache Tomcat 8 Meetup in San Francisco 9/24

posted by Stacey Schneider on September 17, 2013 04:45 PM

The Apache Tomcat community has been working hard over the past two years developing the next release, what will be Apache Tomcat 8. The first release candidate for Tomcat 8 was released this past August, and users are starting to test out the new release. Within the structure of the Apache Software Foundation, the release manager for Apache Tomcat 8 is currently Pivotal's Mark Thomas.

As cited in a profile piece on Mark Thomas on Pivotal's blog earlier this year, since 2003 Thomas has been involved in a number of facets of the Tomcat project, including becoming a Tomcat committer and PMC member, volunteering to be the Tomcat 7  and 8 release manager, creating the Tomcat security pages, becoming a member of the ASF, joining the Apache Security Committee and the JCP expert groups for WebSocket, JSP and Servlet. In addition, he wrote Tomcat’s WebSocket implementation as well as large parts of the Servlet 3.0 and Servlet 3.1 implementations. He also a member of the ASF infrastructure team where, amongst other things, he helps maintain the ASF’s Bugzilla instances.

In parallel with attending JavaOne next week in San Francisco, on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 5:30PM, Thomas will host a meetup at Pivotal's San Francisco offices at 875 Howard Street. During the event he will provide an update on several topics including the most recent developments in Tomcat 8 and open the floor to discuss other items about Apache Tomcat.

Blog : ApacheCon Field Report: The 4 Most Common Discussions

posted by mthomas on February 28, 2013 10:19 AM

ApacheCon North America is almost concluding, and my experience this year has not disappointed. It’s been great to be able to meet up with lots of other project committers. Many committers make the trek to ApacheCon wherever it is in the world and, given that we normally work together just via the project mailing lists, it has been great to be able to discuss current issues and new ideas face to face. Of course, all of these discussions will be making their way (if they aren't there already) to the Tomcat dev mailing list so the everyone in the community can participate.

Personally, I have spent a great deal of my time in presentations. I have spoken about progress on Tomcat 8, delivered another session on clustering and two on security covering vulnerabilities and security response at the ASF. As always, slides are available from http://people.apache.org/~markt and there should be video and audio recordings available as well at some point. Most sessions were reasonably well attended and the conversation and questions flowed after the presentations. Here are some of the questions and answers I found most interesting:
