Name        : tomcat-native
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 1.1.18
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/apr.html
Summary     : Tomcat native library
Description :
Tomcat can use the Apache Portable Runtime to provide superior
scalability, performance, and better integration with native server
technologies.  The Apache Portable Runtime is a highly portable library
that is at the heart of Apache HTTP Server 2.x.  APR has many uses,
including access to advanced IO functionality (such as sendfile, epoll
and OpenSSL), OS level functionality (random number generation, system
status, etc), and native process handling (shared memory, NT pipes and
Unix sockets).  This package contains the Tomcat native library which
provides support for using APR in Tomcat.
