The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language and Java
Apache Tomcat 8.0.20 includes numerous fixes for issues identified
in 8.0.18 as well as a number of other enhancements and changes. The
notable changes since 8.0.18 include:
- Fix a performance regression in the new resources implementation
when signed JARs are used in a web application.
- Fix several bugs that could cause multiple registrations for write
events for a single socket when using Servlet 3.0 async. Typically,
the side effects of these multiple registrations would be
exceptions appearing in the logs.
- Enhance the bean factory used for JNDI resources. The new
attribute forceString allows to support non-standard string
argument property setters.
