Jakarta Tomcat Connector for Apache 1.3 The Tomcat Connector is called mod_jk and allows Tomcat to deliver servelet and jsp pages via Apache. If Apache is used the web site URLs do not need to contain the port number that would be needed if the Tomcat web server was used in standalone mode.

Control and debug Tomcat servlets from Eclipse. This plugin seems to have trouble with some kind of classpath conflict on my machine, as on starting Tomcat the web application throws an exception over XML parsing errors.
Struts Web application framework for integrating the presentation and business layers of a three tier web application. The framework has a single control servlet. The web page designer uses struts tags and other tags to create a JSP page. For each JSP page the programmer implements a number of Java classes which the framework calls. An ActionForm represents the reciever of the JSP page's form elements and also performs input validation. An Action class takes the ActionForm data and makes decisions. The programmer also needs to implement a Data Transfer Object (DTO) that is used to store and transfer the data being used. There is a high degree of dependance on XML configuration files.
