“Apache Tomcat serves as a Java application server and serves as an open-source implementation of various Java technologies, encompassing Java Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Expression Language, and Java WebSocket. Its significance lies in its role in supporting large-scale and mission-critical web applications across diverse industries and organizations.

Currently, there are several active versions of Tomcat in use, with support extending to versions 9 and 10 while utilizing Java 8 as the runtime JVM. The management of the Tomcat service is streamlined for Linux platforms with systemd support.

It’s important to note that users transitioning to Tomcat 10 and beyond should be aware of a significant change resulting from the transition from Java EE to Jakarta EE as part of the transfer of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. This transformation involves a shift in the primary package for all implemented APIs from “”javax.”” to “”jakarta.,”” which may require adjustments to application code when migrating from Tomcat 9 and earlier to Tomcat 10 and later.

Additionally, there are software applications available, including WordPress, Jenkins, databases, LAMP stack, Ansible, DevOps tools, and monitoring applications, which are widely adopted by system administrators and DevOps engineers. Moreover, for select Linux distributions, there are hardened images available based on CIS benchmarks. The Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) follow official installation procedures, eliminating the need for custom configurations if additional setup is necessary.”
