About the course

Apache Tomcat® software is an open-source implementation of the Java Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Expression Language, and Java WebSocket technologies.

In this course, we will dive into what Tomcat is, how it’s configured and installed, day-to-day maintenance tasks, and how to deploy your Java application. We will also go over basic troubleshooting and optimization to get the most out of your application server.

In this course, we will be using Tomcat 9 and Red Hat Enterprise 8 in the the examples and hands-on lab environments.
