We have a forum for question on Tomcat. I have moved this post there.

Not to derail the topic, but Tomcat currently has two 5.x versions: 5.5.20 and 5.0.28. I've looked on their website for an explanation of these differences to no avail. Is there a reason for this?

Bill,

Tomcat 5.0 and 5.5 support the same version of the Servlet/JSP API, but there are a number of differences, as listed here.

One thing I found is that you can't do this in tomcat 5.5 but it works in tomcat 6.

The best place to go for a detailed explanation of the difference between versions is the the release notes document that ships with Tomcat.

Tomcat's site also has a "Which Version" page that goes over these differences.
