I'm migrating an mature application from Tomcat 5.5.x to 6.0.x. What are the sticking points that I need to make sure that I address?

I use a couple of Tomcat's services that I suspect will need adjustment...

  1. The logging mechanism: I altered the conf/logging.properties to include my webapp.
  2. The Resource of type="javax.sql.DataSource": I use this to connect to Oracle.

Edit: *I'm seeing from some of the Tomcat documentation that rather than using the server.xml and logging.properties of the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf, that these belong in the application's context.xml and WEB-INF. Perhaps 6.0 insists upon this?*
