The most popular enterprise server gets another minor update

The most popular Java EE server is back once again with another
minor release, amending a few fixes as Tomcat 5.5 enters the end of
its lifecycle.

The Tomcat developer team have chronicled 18 updates to the
Servlet/JSP Container and details about some of the new add-ons are
found in the release
. They include an enhanced performance for parameter
processing in GET and POST requests and the
 has been
 the maximum number
 parameters per
processing request
. Tomcat 5.5.35 now
compiles to Eclipse 3.7  For further minor tweaks, the
has it all.

It’s coming to the end of Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
series with no updates scheduled after September 2012, with the
download pages being removed in December. Tomcat maintains more
than 50% of the Java EE server market, according to a
recent survey that asked 1000 Java Enterprise companies
it seems logical to progress further with Tomcat 6.0 and 7.0 series
to meet that demand.

It looks like Tomcat and other open source servers will continue
to thrive, as adoption towards open source options flourishes
