I can't find the TOC on the book official home page, rather that you can find the TOC on Amazon...

Here is the link to the TOC on Amazon...

Hope it helps...

I hope the following portion from Balaji Loganathan's review on the Ranch might help you to about the version of Tomcat that is covered in the book...

It is highly recommended to download the code and use them as reference while reading and testing the chapters. This book covers both Tomcat 4 and 5 with a tiny note what has been changed from Tomcat 4 to 5.

Whether or not that book is for beginner can be judged by this paragraph from book's official home page


You don't have to be rocket scientist to appreciate the book or understand it. If you have basic Java skills the book will be a little challenging but not too bad. If you have intermediate to advanced Java skills, you'll have no problem at all and you will probably learn a lot.


If you can read the description of the book from the link that I provided above, it may answer most of your questions about it...

One of the reviewers of the book at Amazon says that
Supporting technologies, such as shutdown hook, Digester, JMX, are also well explained so that you will be really prepared to wade through complex code.

So we can clearly see from his review that JMX in Tomcat is covered in the book...

This is a description of JMX from Sun's Official JMX home page

The Java Management Extensions (JMX) technology is an open technology for management and monitoring that can be deployed wherever management and monitoring are needed. By design, this standard is suitable for adapting legacy systems, implementing new management and monitoring solutions and plugging into those of the future.


Hope it helps....
