Does Tomcat 4 (Catalina) run with JDK 1.4?

Laurent Mihalkovic


Tomcat 4 (Catalina) it is distributed in two different packaging:
one includes the everything necessary to run over a 1.3.x jdk, while the second (called light) does not include an XML parser and is meant to be used with the 1.4 JDK.

The latest version in both standard and light package can be downloaded from the Jakarta Binary Downloads, choosing the latest available version.

[Personal note: I installed and ran both without a hitch on a win2k machine]
