Hi all,

Can you please tell me what advantages can i get in tomcat 6?
Can you please give me the differences between tomcat 5.1.17 and tomcat 6.x?

This will help !

Tomcat 5.x uses 2.4/2.0 Servlet/JSP Spec whereas Tomcat 6.x uses 2.5/2.1 Servlet/JSP spec (I don't know the exact sub version , please refer to documents )

Also, Tomcat 6 uses the NIO package, which has the potential for notable performance gains. Google for "Tomcat NIO" for more detail.

i have configured tomcat 6.0.18 in my test environment.
i can see that the SEVERE exceptions are going into localhost.2008-10-21.log file and these exceptions are not being printed in catalina.out file.

Is there a way, i can get these exceptions in catalina.out file too.
I also want to print the output of System.out.println into catalina.out, when my servlet call this System.out.println
Please suggest how it can be done
