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 The use of the JVM provided UTF-8 decoder has been replaced by a better UTF-8 decoder derived from Apache Harmony.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 : Is Apache Tomcat 7 in your future?

posted by avanabs on July 29, 2010 07:26 AM

I’ve been following Tomcat 7 development for some time now and I've been asked recently why (and when) clients should upgrade to Tomcat 7, now that it’s nearing release (currently targeted for “late summer”). So, I’ve started to give some thought to that question. I have to admit, the answer wasn’t immediately obvious either way. I’m going to split this blog into two parts; the first with my views and very preliminary results of my testing and evaluation. The second will be based on an interview scheduled for this Wednesday with one of the senior Apache Tomcat “committers”.

Note: In Apache Speak, a Committer is selected by his peers to be trusted to make changes to the code base. In a mature and extremely widely used project like Tomcat, this is very hard to achieve and carries great responsibility.

When I think about “upgrading”, I immediately think about two quite different scenarios.

  1. Upgrading existing infrastructure for production environments. “If it works, why mess with it?” surely applies.
  2. Selecting the infrastructure for new projects. “Should I really base my critical new project on a dot-zero infrastructure release?” is usually my first thought.

We’ll explore both situations, focusing on both Tomcat 7’s stability as a “dot-zero” release and what new capabilities Tomcat 7 brings to the table.

For development and operations teams, a presentation which outlines background of releases, new features of Tomcat 6, and more.

Since starting as a reference implementation by Sun Microsystems, Tomcat has undergone quite a history in the past 10 years with an average of one release per month. The history, versions, development lifecycle, and an in-depth look at key features in the new release are shared with other key insights on the new release and throughs on upgrading.
