Hi,
To upgrade from tomcat 5.0 to 5.5, source folders for both versions are checked and found that in 5.5 there are completly renamed & change of packages happen.



jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src:
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-servletapi-5
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-tomcat-5
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-tomcat-catalina
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-tomcat-connectors
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-tomcat-jasper

apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src:
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/aservletapi
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/build
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/connectors
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/container
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/jasper
apache-tomcat-5.5.26-src/servletapi

I need some help on "jakarta-tomcat-catalina" package in 5.0 src which has a package "catalina\src\share\org\apache\coyote\tomcat5". Now this is not present in 5.5 src.

Also, in 5.0, jakarta-tomcat-connectors\coyote\src\java\org\apache\coyote package has some tomcat3+tomcat4 package. this is also present in 5.5 src.

My queries arewe use source code to build tomcat)

1) Why catalina package (which present in 5.0 src) not in 5.5? How to get this for working with 5.5 code?

2) What tomcat3, tomcat4, tomcat5 for coyoteRequest signifies?

3) Can update/alias of these files (tomcat4) can be used in place of tomcat5 files which are missing?

4) Can it be refer from some where while building tomcat from src code for 5.5?

thanks
