Published February 11, 2014 in Technology

Apache Tomcat 8 implements new versions of the Servlet, JSP and EL specifications as well as adding support for the new WebSocket specification. Work has also been completed on internal refactoring in a number of areas that will impact a number of Tomcat specific features.

This presentation will provide an overview of the changes and new features introduced by both the updated specifications and the Tomcat specific changes. This session will enable attendees to identify the Tomcat 8 features of greatest interest to them and provide them with the information required to start planning their migration to Tomcat 8.
