Description Sebb 2011-03-08 12:49:20 UTC
http://tomcat.apache.org/download-70.cgi#7.0.10 says:

Please see the README file for packaging information. It explains what every distribution contains. 

...

Extras:

    * JMX Remote jar (pgp, md5)
    * Web services jar (pgp, md5)
    * JULI adapters jar (pgp, md5)
    * JULI log4j jar (pgp, md5)

==

The README says:

bin/extras/
    Additional components. See documentation.

The documemtation links to:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/extras.html

which has sections called:
* Full commons-logging implementation
* Web Services support (JSR 109)
but does not cover JMX or how the JULI jars are to be used.

The README does not actually document what the Deployer, Extras and Embedded downloads contain. Please could the download page point directly to the documentation for these instead?

And there does not appear to be any docn. for the JMX Remote Jar at all.
