With Tomcat 8 recently being declared stable thoughts are turning towards Tomcat 9. This presentation will provide an early preview of what to expect in Tomcat 9. At the time of writing this abstract, the Servlet EG was just starting to discuss HTTP/2.0 (a.k.a. SPDY) and the WebSocket EG had previously discussed expanding the support for extensions. The presentation will provide an update on the direction being taken by each of the relevant specifications (Servlet, JSP, EL & WebSocket). There are also some major changes planned for some of Tomcat's non-specification features including the dropping of the BIO HTTP and BIO AJP connectors and the removal of Comet support. In addition to an overview of the current plan for Tomcat 9, this presentation will also provide information on how that plan is progressing.
