Introduction to Apache Tomcat
Learn how to install, configure, and administer the leading JSP container Tomcat.

The Introduction to Apache Tomcat training course focuses on installing, configuring, and tuning Tomcat as a JSP and Servlet container. The Tomcat training course is structured around the most recent Tomcat release. Additionally, our Tomcat Administration training examines configuring Tomcat to successfully operate with the Apache HTTPD product (Apache Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Daemon product).

This course can be combined with the Introduction to Apache HTTPD Administration course to provide a comprehensive Apache Administration training program. 

The Introduction to Apache Tomcat training course can be taught using Apache Tomcat 6, 7 or 8. 

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Implement Tomcat as a JSP container within your organization
  • Migrate from another JSP container (such as Resin) to Tomcat
  • Deploy and manage web applications
  • Monitor web access through web logs
  • Implement a simple security policy
  • Configure Tomcat for a clustered environment
This course will be delivered in 3 Days

DI will work with you and your team to define the most appropriate delivery structure, schedule and dates. Structure, schedule and dates will be determined by project schedule, team availability and classroom availability. And of course, it will also be determined by DI’s instructor availability.
