By now everyone should know that CF 10 runs on Apache Tomcat. What's new and different about that? Sure, Adobe's goal is that running atop Tomcat "just works" and is simply better than JRun, and for many there will be no apparent difference. But there's no denying there are new capabilities and some differences. In this session, veteran CF troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will review and explore these new capabilities and differences.

He'll address such things as changes regarding web servers (the "internal" web server, now Tomcat's, and changes in external web server integration); config tweaks people have done in JRun and whether/how those are to be done on Tomcat; some things about native Tomcat don't apply to Tomcat as run under CF; as well as logging, configuration, and other matters. More than that, Charlie will identify new capabilities that Tomcat enables, some of which may not be necessarily identified as "new" by Adobe but which we might leverage.
