This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I haven't delved into Tomcat 6, but if it's anything like the changes from Tomcat 4 to Tomcat 5 you aren't going to be able to just copy and massage the server.xml -- the changes are too vast.
Rather, you may want to start with the generic server.xml (copy it first so that you don't lose it), and add things to it one at a time, testing along the way, until you get all your settings migrated.
I found that it's usually a great opportunity to make sure no "cruft" has accumulated in the server.xml.
Again, this is extraplolating from my experiences with migrating Tomcat 4 to 5; not any concrete experience with 5 to 6. [ January 02, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
