      Description

      The configuration we use in server.xml looks like this:

              <Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector" port="8080" minProcessors="5"
                         maxProcessors="75"
                         enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="10" debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"
                         useURIValidationHack="false" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>
      

      While it's not causing any problem at the moment, I believe we should be moving to the newer version of the connector.

      Apache has removed reference to Tomcat 4's documentation from its home page, making it difficult to search information about the connector despite that they are still exist.

      We should move to Tomcat 6's connector.

            I don't think the className attribute is used anymore. Please see the linked issue CONF-13446.
