I purchased the book literally "fooled" by the title. There is nothing professional about this book. All this book tells you is the documentation that comes with tomcat! It does not even provide some naive examples (forget "professional" ones). (Does not explain jk2 installation, hardly any detailed configuration routines!)
The only other purpose this book can serve to anyone, is to save paper while printing tomcat documentation.

I'm not a software developer but need to know about Tomcat - detail on what it can do and how it relates to web servers and applications servers. Before picking up this book I had no direct experience of running either Tomcat or even the Apache Server. This book provides an excellent introduction to the subject as well as having a wealth of detail for the more demanding reader. Highly recommended.

This book covers the basics including code snippets for the vast majority of files showing how a basic configuration might look.
This book covers the directory layouts required for a successful installation and the corresponding files which need to be in those directories. Fairly good coverage is given to each of the elements (with examples) contained in those files. Generally, the book helped me breeze through installation of java and Tomcat. The book provides separate examples for a windows installation and linux installation, which was most appreciated. However, I did struggle mightily when it came time to configuring Tomcat with Apache. As mine was not a "standard" setup. At the point where I needed a broader understanding of how these components meshed, I realized the book offers a well written, nicely organized description of the basics. Providing a holistic understanding of the interactions wasn't included.

Very good book, especially as an introduction to tomcat.
Would like to see more on:
1. Running tomcat emdebbed.
2. Connector configuration (jni, unixsocket) pluss the new configuration style/format used with jk2.

I was quite surprised by this book when I read it-- the topical coverage goes from fundamentals of a web server's role in J2EE development, to installing one, to adding various connector tools , and finally to testing web apps for load. That's going from start to finish for a service administrator, all in a tidy 500+ pages.
Many guides try to cover all the details of a tool and get lost in explaining too much. This guide remains practical, and might even frustrate someone who does want every detail. For those who want to get something done and need reliable information, this book is an ideal desktop reference.
If you want to learn some J2EE stuff by example and using a tool, this book will prepare you well for further reading on J2EE design. I also like the coverage on Ant and Log4J -- more books should explain how such tools integrate into a larger environment.
This book will help anyone who feels confident with a web server to build and extend Apache/Tomcat on their own. I recommend it to anyone who supports the product or wants an aid to experimenting with it.

Format: Paperback
If you use Tomcat, this book is almost a must. This book will teach the reader not only how to install Tomcat, but configure it for optimal performance. In the first few hours with the book, I had learned how Tomcat actually worked, how to connect Tomcat with my Apache server, and how to configure those sometimes cryptic server.xml and web.xml files. The book also has a chapter on JDBC for readers interested in using web-based databases and has a separate chapter for two other open-source programs: Ant and Log4J.
Some web-admin pros probably will not need this book, and yes, some of the information the book provides can be found for free sprinkled throughout the web. However, it cannot be denied that the Jakarta Project's own documentation on Tomcat (as well as the open-source Tomcat book on Sourceforge.net) are definitely not as thorough or good as "Professional Apache Tomcat," not to mention that the book provides a convenient one-stop source for all questions.
Many other reviewers agree: "Professional Apache Tomcat" is worth its weight in gold if you use Tomcat extensively.

I was quite pleased with this book. I've been active on the Tomcat mailing lists for many months, and have seen the level of frustration experienced by new users firsthand due to the existing Tomcat documentation. While lack of solid documentation is one of the problems most open source projects face, there are always books written as supplements, and of the Tomcat books I have read, this one stands out far above the rest.
In particular, I found the chapters on Shared Tomcat Hosting (Chapter 19), Log4J (Chapter 18), Server Load Testing (Chapter 20), and the web server connectors to be the most valuable. Most of the traffic on the mailing lists is generated from problems using the connectors, and the authors went to great lengths to explain their configuration and usage in a clear and concise manner, even in a load balancing environment.
For systems administrators in a corporate or ISP environment, the chapter on shared hosting is worth the price of the book all by itself. It lays out how to handle shared hosting with Tomcat solo as well as integrated with Apache, and also describes setting up a separate JVM for each virtual host, something that can be critical to making system administration easy. After all, you don't want a problem with one client's Tomcat to cause problems for other clients.
The book deserves the use of the word "Professional" in its title, as it goes way beyond simply setting up Tomcat to work with servlets and JSP. Especially in later chapters, the issues encountered by administrators and developers in a professional or corporate, mixed-use environment are covered concisely and thoroughly.
All told, one of the better technical books I have read, and I have read more than I care to count. In addition to being a solid reference, this book gave me information I was able to use at an advanced level right away on my own servers for my own clients. You can't ask for more than that.
