Anyone know when we can expect to see Tomcat 6 ?

I'm seeing more and more references to J2EE 5.. And personally wouldnt want to use suns application server as i've been more than happy with tomcat so far, but would like to learn more about J2EE 5

Hi fried .
also i did not find anything regard to Tomcat 6 in tomcat web site
but , Which services in java ee 5 you want to try in a tomcat instance ?

I want to be out of context
Can i ask, why you do not like glassfish ?
by the way , glassfish is not sun microsystem application server , it is opensource under CDDL in .
you can find it at :

I was with tomcat and i was/am happy with it.
but now I am using glassfish+netbeans in development of web /ejb applications.
it's admin console is really superior ,monitoring features are really nice , performance as far as i can say is OK ...
It is reference implemntatation of java ee 5 , it means that all components are available under glassfish umbrella , but Tomcat is web container.
you can plug a JPA to it if you wanna use JPA... , but i think glassfish worth a look :-)
