Apache TomEE, JavaEE Web Profile and More on Tomcat
Apache TomEE is a Java EE 6 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 6 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!

Apache Tomcat and SSL
Correct configuration of SSL requires a great deal of care. If just one aspect of it is incorrect, either nothing will work or, worse, an apparently secure configuration will be exactly the opposite. In this presentation, Mark Thomas will provide an overview of how SSL works followed by a walk through the process of configuring stand-alone Tomcat for SSL with both the pure Java and APR/native connectors and with Apache httpd as a reverse proxy.

Migrating to Apache Tomcat 8
In theory - if the J2EE specification is to be believed - it should be possible to take an application that runs on an older version of a J2EE Servlet container (like Apache Tomcat) and install it on a newer version without breaking anything. Real life, as is often the case, is not that simple. In this presentation, Mark Thomas will work though the potential pitfalls when upgrading your Tomcat server - both from changes to how Tomcat is configured and from 'improvements' in the specifications. For each potential pitfall Mark will explain how to avoid it and how to work-around it should you come across it.

Connecting Tomcat to the World: Performance and other considerations when selecting a Tomcat connector
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 connectors are likely to be the best-fit for your environments and some performance comparisons — including the results of a race against Apache httpd.

A Practical use of Servlet 3.1: Implmenting WebSocket
Servlet 3.1 introduces a number of new features including HTTP upgrade support and non-blocking IO to the Servlet developer. These new features offer an enormous potential to developers but they need to be used with care. In this presentation, Mark Thomas will discuss how he used these Servlet 3.1 features (and some Servlet 3.0 features) to implement WebSocket support for Apache Tomcat. Along the way, the WebSocket implementation hit a number of issues including variations in non-blocking styles, requirements for blocking IO, problems decoding UTF-8 and handling of generics types and for each issue Mark will describe the issue and how it was solved for Tomcat's WebSocket implementation.
