SpringSource Launches TomcatExpert.com
Not too long ago we chatted about SpringSource. Now they’re back in the news again. SpringSource, a division of VMware and Java app evangelist, has unveiled a new site to help the Apache Tomcat community. Here’s the deal…
TomcatExpert.com, as it were, is a “professionally managed Apache Tomcat resource library and community.” Fancy. Who’s hanging out there? Well, developers, system administrators and web operations professionals that are developing and operating Apache Tomcat. And what info is available to them? Why, only the best from “recognized leaders” of the Tomcat platform. And since it was created by SpringSource, you’ll be getting support, training services and insight from various experts, deep knowledge base, and reliability. TomcatExpert.com is operated by development operating expert inside SpringSource itself.
SpringSource says they’re expecting the site to be the single go-to-one-stop place for all your Apache Tomcat needs, be it troubleshooting to application server deployment. And that’s kind of a big deal, because, as the press release needs to remind you — Apache Tomact is the “world’s most widely used Java application server…” and “SpringSource employees” are credited with 95% of bux fixes to Apache Tomcat in the last two years. Plus, a good handful of Tomcat problem incidents are noted and fixed by SpringSource before they reach the community. SpringSource says it’s resulted in a 97% renewal rate for Tomcat support. Sounds pretty impressive.
And maybe it’s silly to say, but it almost seems like SpringSource loves Tomcat so much, the site is actually a gift. here’s Matt Stodolnic, senior director of marketing for SpringSource:
“To show our continued support for Apache Tomcat technologies, SpringSource has created a one-stop-shop for Apache Tomcat users to gain access to expert resources, discussion topics and technical support…TomcatExpert.com will give its users an insight into the tips and tricks to make management and administration of Apache Tomcat easier, faster and more productive.”
You can almost hear him beaming, can’t you?
Whatever is the case, TomcatExpert.com is already booming, so head on over and get your virtualized app on.
