Does this book explain just the new concepts, features of Tomcat 6 or does it go into the corresponding servlet and jsp spec in detail as well(it will be very useful if the spec is also covered to some extent as well). To make it more clear, will it be more like Charles Lyon's SCWCD book(which goes in depth of the spec) or like Head First SCWCD?

Regards,
Joshua

The book explains how to install, configure, deploy, and tune Tomcat 6 server(s).

It does not cover details of JSP or Servlet specifications.

Ok,I guess only some of the basic part(or the new features) of the Servlet 2.5/JSP 2.1 related to webserver will be explained.

And what gives you that impression?

What I read was:

Why would you want a book on a particular Servlet container to go over the servlet spec? If you want to know what's in the servlet spec, download it and read it. It's not written in Latin or ancient Greek, it's not buried in a tomb or locked in an Ivory tower.

I think Tomcat 6 is developed against Servlet 2.5/JSP 2.1 spec, hence I thought that if new features included in the spec with relative to web server(not the entire spec) were also explained in the book, it would be useful.

I apologize if I had made a wrong comment or so.
