CF10 and Tomcat
So the big deal for the next version of CF is that it will support Tomcat. Right? Guess again.
So I had a twitter conversation with the Adobe CF product manager, Hemant Khandelwai yesterday and he admitted that the version of Tomcat they are planning to ship with CF10 will be a modified version that they are handling themselves. If you were planning to run CF on top of a vanilla Apache Tomcat install, then it will break several things like certain CGI variables and SES Urls. They are apparently submitting their modifications to the Apache Tomcat group but it's not certain they will accept the changes or in time for the release of CF10.
Just giving people a heads up on this in case you ddin't know. Naturally, I'm not happy with this situation, but hopefully Apache will accept the mods in time.
