To have an admin console that is more user friendly and simplified like XAMPP, LAMP, Laragon.
It also shall have the log viewing capability, memory usage and some dashboard on applications hosted by the tomcat

I don't have too much experience with monitoring, however, it's possible it could be improved. It would be great if they offered more integration of monitoring tools. The management maybe can be improved a bit.

In the solution, we are using the terminal to enter command line codes for operations and management, this is difficult for me. It would be better if we had some administrator UI tools for this.

In terms of features, this solution is limited. It does do its job, but the enterprise-level features are missing. In the next release, I would like to see better maintenance and administration utilities. For example, they could be simplified.

The interface is not user-friendly. You need to have knowledge of the operating system, and Linux to configure the solution. It is not user-friendly. I would like to see a user-friendly interface.

Tomcat is used mainly for database connections. As of now, we configure that environment for any database configuration. But if any utility can integrate where we can pass the database connection as a string of details, then it should encrypt them and keep them inside. From that security perspective, Tomcat requires improvement. They should integrate this security feature.

The high availability is not as robust as the competition is, such as WebLogic and Jboss. At the moment, it is dependent on how Java is working. So if Java goes this way, then Apache Tomcat follows. Apache is very tightly coupled to Java. The question would more be where does Java need to be? Then Apache Tomcat will follow because it's Open-Source.

I would personally like it if the admin console would show more information specifically about memory being used.

The enterprise support: Tomcat is an open source project, but for IT concerns, the enterprise support is needed when we encounter problems on it.
