Why move from Tomcat 5.5.x to Tomcat 6

Hi,

I see on Tomcat website that the version 6 supports Servlet 2.5/JSP 2.1.

Other than that, what are the main benefits of migrating from Tomcat 5.5.x to 6.0.1?

Thanks.

One really good reason to go to Tomcat 6, the NIO connectors and support for Comet with CometFilter and CometProcessor can allow Tomcat to scale much further. Here is a good load analysis:

This is highly effective with AJAX applications.

Thanks guys.

Very good reasons, both. I am going to take a good, hard look at it as soon as time permits.
This should be a fun week in this forum
