I have my web app running on Tomcat 4.0.3 which implements Servlet 2.3 & JSP 1.2 spec. I need to upgrade to Tomcat 5.0.18 which implements Servlet 2.4 & JSP 2.0 spec.
What could be the issues i would have to deal with? Is there any document listing the same?

As far as I know, the web apps developed for Servlet 2.3 are still compatible with the Servlet 2.4 Container... One prominent warning will be at the servlets, which implement SingleThreadModel interface... I would suggest you to have a look at the portion that contains changes between two specs in the Servlet 2.4 Specification.... So that u will know which servlets in your web app are needed to modify...
