This book is a solid, well-rounded guide to using Apache Tomcat and getting the most out of it. The authors cover a wide number of topics, including installation, modification, managing services, and even testing applications for server load. I was particularly pleased with the clean language and style of the book, something I had noted before in Sing Li's Wrox book on Jini. Li is a contributing author here as well.
The only objection I have really isn't a fault of the book at all, but it nonetheless hampers my ability to read it carefully. So much work is done these days to convert configuration and property files into XML formats, that books like this one are often forced to explain features by showing example XML files and encouraging the reader to parse it visually. Sweet mama, that's boring; fortunately, the authors keep this aspect to a minimum.
I recommend it to anyone who needs a desktop reference for learning all the aspects of Apache Tomcat as they need them.
