We make binary versions of our code for the convenience of our
users. In general, binaries are meant for developers who want to use
the Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies (versus those who want to
"hack" the technologies in order to integrate them into other products).
Depending on what kind of user you are, you'll want to use a
particular type of build. We divide our available binaries into the
- Release Builds
- Milestone Builds
- Nightly Builds
- Demo Builds
Release Builds are those that are ready for Prime Time. This
build is "as good as it gets!"
Milestone Builds are those that are somewhat stable but not
crystal-clean. We have some confidence in them, but they are buggy and
should only be used by advanced users who want to explore future product
direction or take advantage of new features. For developers, these
builds serve as a mechanism to track progress towards a release.
Nightly Builds are those that are very unstable
(a.k.a. dynamite!). We have no confidence in them. They are for
developers who are helping to develop the technology and want "the
latest bits." Use at your own risk!
Demo Builds are useful for showing demonstrations of our
products. For example, we packaged a sample Velocity application with a minimal distribution
of Tomcat 3.x and 4.x.
