Package: tomcat5.5
Version: 5.5.20-2
Severity: wishlist

I'd love to have an easy way to configure Tomcat with APR support. According to


we would need

 * APR library (already packaged as libapr1)
 * OpenSSL libraries (already packaged as openssl)
 * JNI wrappers for APR used by Tomcat (libtcnative) (not yet packaged)

Building instructions can be found on the page, too.

This issue is valid for tomcat6 as well.
