Tomcat 9 (Very Early) Preview - Mark Thomas, Pivotal
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.

Apache TomEE, Java Ee Web Profile And More On Tomcat - Jean-Louis Monteiro, Tomitribe
Apache TomEE is the Java EE Web Profile certified version of Apache Tomcat and combines the simplicity of Tomcat with the power of Java EE. The first half of this session introduces TomEE and shows how Tomcat applications leveraging Java EE technologies can become simpler and lighter with a Java EE certified solution built right on Tomcat.
The second half jumps right into action and gives a coding tour of TomEE, including quickly bootstrapping projects, doing proper testing with Arquillian, and setting up environments. If you’re a Tomcat lover or a TomEE enthusiast, this is the session you don’t want to miss!

Choosing Tomcat Connectors: Internals And Performances - Jean-Frederic Clere, Red Hat
Tomcat directly-supports a total of 6 connector configurations, many of which are confusing to newcomers or whose usage has been passed-down in arcane configurations that none of the users actually understand. In this talk, you’ll learn the differences between BIO and NIO, what APR can do for you, and whether or not using AJP makes any sense. You'll be able to see what a proxy can do for you and see what connectors are likely to be the best-fit for your environments. You will see some performance comparisons — including the results of a race against Apache httpd and other servers. A part of the presentation will be dedicated to the Tomcat8 new connector and WebSockets.
