1.154.1. RHBA-2011:0138: bug fix update

Updated tomcat5 packages that resolve several issues are now available.
Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies.
These updated tomcat5 packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
* Fetching a data source from Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) failed with a ClassNotFoundException. This happened because the naming-factory-dbcp library referred to a missing class when calling data source. This update adds the system property javax.sql.DataSource.Factory to JAVA_OPTS and data source fetching works as expected. ( BZ#217630)
* After upgrading to tomcat5-5.5.23-0jpp.9.el5_5, the system throws a StackOverflowError. This happened due to a typographical error in the patch. With this update, the error is fixed. ( BZ#620996)
* After upgrading to tomcat5-5.5.23-0jpp.9.el5_5, a NullPointerException occurred after starting the Tomcat service. This was due to an error in the context.xml validation. This update corrects validation of the context.xml file. ( BZ#623465)
* Tomcat 5 failed to start due to incorrect file permissions. Permissions have been corrected in the installation script and the problem no longer occurs. ( BZ#551267)
All tomcat5 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

1.154.2. RHBA-2010:0744: bug fix update

Updated tomcat5 packages that resolve several issues are now available.
Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies.
These updated tomcat5 packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
* Previously, when Tomcat was starting up, it failed to undeploy applications and returned a 'StackOverflowError' exception. This was caused by an infinite loop that eventually caused Tomcat to run out of memory. The infinite loop was a result of a faulty check that searched for directory traversal attempts in WAR archives. With this update, the undeploying of applications works as expected and no longer returns a stack overflow error. ( BZ#623254)
* During Tomcat's startup process, applications that used the 'context.xml' configuration file would occasionally fail with a 'NullPointerException' exception or a 'ConcurrentModificationException' exception, leaving the 'tomcat5' process running, but not working. With this update, applications no longer fail and no longer return the aforementioned exceptions. ( BZ#627507)
All users of tomcat5 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
