Alcoa use Apache Tomcat middleware to connect many different programs, applications and web services. Alcoa needed to upgrade their version of Tomcat as a result of a planned hardware upgrade, and asked HordernIT for help.
HordernIT upgraded the Apache Tomcat middleware including identifying and resolving a number of compatibility issues with applications related to the middleware. Following the upgrade, HordernIT also provided troubleshooting advice and information to the application and server support staff on how to maintain and upgrade subsequent Tomcat versions.
The upgrade was a success and, with the information provided by HordernIT, Alcoa have also managed to deal with subsequent upgrades with a minimum of fuss.
