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.

- Sonny

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
