Apache Tomcat Releases a New Version 8.0.3 (beta)

Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 8.0.3 (beta) of Apache Tomcat. Tomcat 8 is aligned with Java EE 7.

In addition to supporting updated versions of the JAVA EE specifications, Tomcat 8 includes a number of improvements compared to Tomcat 7. The notable changes include:

  • Support for Java Servlet 3.1, JavaServer Pages 2.3, Java Unified Expression Language 3.0 and Java WebSocket 1.0Tomcat Home
  • The default connnector implementation is now the Java non-blocking implementation (NIO) for both HTTP and AJP.
  • A new resources implementation that replaces Aliases, VirtualLoader, VirtualDirContext, JAR resources and external repositories with a single, consistent approach for configuring additional web application resources. The new resources implementation can also be used to implement overlays (using a master WAR as the basis for multiple web applications that each have their own customizations).
