Intermediate to Advanced Offline Reference for Administrators

This book covers the installation and the administration of Tomcat 5.0 and 5.5 in parallel. It does not cover how to develop web applications. Most people probably do not want to read this book from cover to cover. It is possible though, but you should be prepared for a rough ride: Simple topics next to advanced topics, high density information with hardly any redundancy adjacent to pages and pages of screen shots. The parallel coverage of the two Tomcat versions just makes the reading through even worse. This book is more an offline reference than an "I read it all" type of book. The author is competent with moderate skills in explaining things. You certainly should have a solid knowledge of Tomcat, before you pick up this book. You will get rewarded with treatments of topics you will only scarcely find anywhere else: Setting up Tomcat "together" with one of the popular web servers the connector way, or setting up Tomcat in a clustered environment.

Great book!!

This is the book you really need if you want to administer or just play with Tomcat 5.0 and 5.5 (examples given for both in great detail). This is more a reference book but with detailed explanations and straight to the point (no pages and pages of beating the bushes). You need to have a general (I repeat, general) idea of what Tomcat is for because they don't tell you the super very basics (that's why this book is SO INCREDIBLY GOOD!). If you feel like you don't know what all this is for, scan the official documentation for Tomcat on Jakarta's website, get familiar with some key ideas (that server.xml is for configuring the server, what context is for, etc etc). You don't have to understand all that, just get familiar with it. Then buy this book and you will know what you reading about, how to put things together, etc. This is the book I found to be the only book that actually can be used in real environment (and I don't mean among super geeks, but normal users as well)

Caffeinated introduction to Jakarta

This is a rocket ride of code and configuration to get you right through a walkthrough of Jakarta from soup to nuts. There is little exposition and the work is fairly short. If you know what you are doing and you are looking for a complete walkthrough then this is your book. If you are looking for a reference then this is not it.
