Format: Paperback
I was really impressed with this book and felt like it had been written with my requirements in mind. The other Tomcat books I have read felt like they were paraphrasing the online help; additional material was provided, but little of it was new. While reading the first few chapters of this book, several of my ongoing queries had been answered, and there were a bunch of other gems as well - it sorted out my AJP and APR queries, gave options for running Tomcat on privileged ports without running as root, and dug further into the server.xml configuration than I

Professional Apache Tomcat 6 (WROX Professional Guides) is aimed at the serious Tomcat user. It will be useful to people that do serious tinkering at home, but it is a an absolute bible if you have Tomcat running production code or other critical uses.

Personally I found that the level of information did not always provide 100% coverage but, for example, the level of detail provided covering server.xml, web.xml and context.xml configuration will be of great use. The descriptions go into plenty of detail but rarely goes overboard. Examples of places to hook into or extend the existing functionality are pointed out, but the authors don't get distracted in providing sample implementations when the defaults are sufficient. The information is full of the sort professional advice and directions that I would expect from a book of this name, and that has been sadly missing from the other offerings I have seen.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't know of another book that gives this much detail, especially on virtual hosting. This was the reason I bought it.
My site is up and running on one VPS, one tomcat one IP, and 2 domains. Awesome. Did I mention I am using GoDaddy? They
gave me an awesome deal. My only concern was getting everything set up. Other hosts charge for the tomcat setup. A good
deal if you are willing to nut up and set it up yourself. Get this book!

I highly recommend this book to anyone trying the same.

I have to prewarn that I haven't completed reading the whole book but I have jumped around to various chapters and have found that this book well very well outlined, and explained. It would be a worthwhile book for anyone getting into web server administration.
