Tomcat Expert Seminar

Yesterday I attended SpringSource's Tomcat Expert Seminar.

This session rocked! I have learned a lot of neat ways to enhance our usage and troubleshooting techniques. The presenter, Filip Hanik, was not only extremely knowledgeable, but he was also entertaining and engaging. He handled questions from the audience extremely well, being able to give a direct and informative answer to nearly every question.

The most interesting topics for me were:

  • Large scale deployments -- showed flexible ways to organise deployment to simplify instance configuration and management.

  • Troubleshooting -- great tips on Tomcat but even more on Java and server-based systems in general.

I look forward to attending similar sessions in the future.
