Bug 51655

Summary: Index page does not say what native does

Description Sebb 2011-08-12 11:01:10 UTC
The TC Native index page does not give any details of what it does or why/when it should be used.

It would be helpful to add an overview of its purpose and functionality.

Also, there are no obvious links to the developer community or sources of help.

The title also reads oddly:

"The Apache Tomcat Native"

sounds like a person of Amerindian origin. It would be better as:


"The Apache Tomcat Native Library"

or

"Apache Tomcat Native Library"

By the index page, I mean:

http://tomcat.apache.org/native-doc/

which is what comes up first when searching for Tomcat Native.

Fixed in trunk and 1.1 branch. Should be in 1.1.28.
