I can't seen to find any DOC on http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat.
I found it for Tomcat 3.33 and 3.23 but not 4.0.3.
I have read the README.txt, RUNNING.txt and BUILDING.txt but no luck.
I feel sorry for asking this question. hehehe
Thanks guys!

So far, Tomcat's not available as a plugin, though there's talk about some day.
Right now you have to pipe the requests from Apache to a standalone Tomcat. Under Tomcat 3, that can be done with mod_jk. Tomcat 4 uses the Warp connector (mod_webapp).
Documentation for mod_webapp has been hard to find, incomplete, and out of date (they changed the basic directives 2 or 3 times!). I've found one of the best places to look is in the "readme" information that displays down below the list of files when browsing the downloads section of the Jakarta website.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

ah.... thanks Tim.
They never mention this on their web site. umm..
So Tomcat is meant for standalone as a Web server and servlet/jsp container?
What would you guys use if you have a apache Web server in production and want to try J2ee? Any suggestion for other container?

You don't need Apache at all unless performance or Apache-specific features are an issue - Tomcat can serve static content (such as HTML and GIF/JPEG), but Apache can do so faster.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
