  • There are many documents explaining how to connect various versions of Apache Web Server (httpd) or Microsoft IIS and Apache Tomcat. Some of these documents are more up to date than others. Links to some of the more useful documents are listed on the Apache Tomcat wiki's useful links page.
  • Tomcat Performance, by Peter Lin


The Apache Tomcat project doesn't endorse any of the books mentioned here. They are mentioned just because they are Tomcat centric and may be useful references. The books are listed by descending publication date.
