The goal of the Apache Tomcat Project is to provide commercial-quality server solutions based on the Java Platform that are developed in an open and cooperative fashion. Tomcat 3.x is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.2 and JavaServer Pages 1.1 Specifications. Tomcat 4.x is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.3 and JavaServer Pages 1.2 Specifications, and is a re-implementation of the Tomcat servlet engine from the ground up. The current branch, Tomcat 5.x, is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.4 and JavaServer Pages 2.0 specifications, with increased attention to scalability, reliability, and management functionality.
