Reusable Jakarta Code, Tomcat Configuration, and More Persistence

by chromatic
ONJava Newsletter for 06/26/2003

Dear Readers,

Greetings from the surprisingly pleasant Portland, Oregon area. (Yes, with OSCOON 2003 just around the corner, it's time to remind everyone in less temperate climes that this is a nice vacation spot.) Here's what's new in the world of ONJava.com this week.

As long promised, this week saw author Vikram Goyal take the first step into exploring the high-quality, free, and reusable components from the Jakarta Commons. "Using the Jakarta Commons, Part 1" demonstrates the web-related and (so he calls them) "trivial" components. If you're interested in writing interesting code instead of re-solving yet another solved problem, head over to Jakarta and see what they have in store.

Jason Brittain and Ian F. Darwin have just completed Tomcat: the Definitive Guide. Tomcat has several advantages — it's free, it's powerful, and can do almost anything. It has one drawback, however, and that's that it can be complex to configure. Fortunately, Jason and Ian are sharing their knowledge in "Top Ten Tomcat Configuration Tips." Learn more about virtual hosts, authentication, and single-sign on.
