Java News from Friday, January 23, 2004

Picture of a Cat, Tomcat logo The Jakarta Apache Project has released Tomcat 5.0.18, the servlet container for the Apache web server and the official reference implementation of the Java Servlet API and Java Server Pages (JSP). Tomcat 5.0 implements version 2.4 of the Java Servlet API 2.4 and version 2.0 of Java Server Pages. The numbering is a little confusing, but this appears to be the second stable release in the 5.0 series. It should really be numbered 5.0.1. It appewars to be mostly a bug fix release.
