  <s1 title="Getting started with Cocoon on Mac OS X in X easy steps">
  	<s2 title="Introduction">
  		<p>The easiest way to run Cocoon Under Mac OS X is using the Tomcat servlet engine.
Tomcat has a built-in webserver, so we won't bother using the Apache webserver in this getting
started guide.</p><p>This guide is written for Mac OS 10.1.</p>
  	<s2 title="I. Download and unzip Tomcat">
  		<p>Download and unzip a binary version of the latest production quality release
(release build) of Tomcat: <link href=""></link></p>
  <p>(Feb 2002 this was <code></code></p>
  <p>With a standard install of Mac OS X just download the zip-file, and 
    the unzipping should start automagically with Stuffit Expander.</p>
  	<s2 title="II. Download and unzip Cocoon 2">
  		<p>Download and unzip a binary version of The latest distribution of Cocoon: <link
  		<p>(Feb 2002 this was <code></code>)</p>
  	<s2 title="III. Where to put it?">
  		<p>Start a terminal window and move both the tomcat folder and the cocoon folder
to <br /><code>/usr/local/</code></p>
  		<p>You will need administrator privileges for this.</p>
  	<s2 title="IV. Make a Tomcat symlink">
  		<p>It can be handy to make a symbolic link <code>tomcat</code> to the
jakarta-tomcat folder:  <br />
  		<code>cd /usr/local/</code> <br />
    		<code>ln -s jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1 tomcat</code></p>
    		<p>You can then later always refer to the path /usr/local/tomcat and just change
this link if you install newer versions of Tomcat.</p>
  <p>We will later refer to this path as {CATALINA_HOME} (Catalina is the  
    codename for version 4 of Tomcat).</p>
  	<s2 title="V. Setting environment variables">
  		<p>You need to set the two environment variables <code>JAVA_HOME</code>
and <code>CATALINA_HOME</code>. 
     Tomcat will use this to find your Java installation and want to know where
     it is installed itself.</p>
     <p>If you use the default shell in Mac OS X, the tcsh, you can put this in your
~/.login file: <br />
    	<code>setenv JAVA_HOME /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home</code>
<br />
    	<code>setenv CATALINA_HOME /usr/local/tomcat</code></p>
    	<p>If you use bash (Bourne Again SHell), put this in your ".bash_profile"-file:
<br />
    	 <code>export JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home</code><br
    	 <code>export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/tomcat</code></p>
  	<s2 title="VI. Install Cocoon on Tomcat">
  		<p>Copy the <code>cocoon.war</code> file to <code>{CATALINA_HOME}/webapps/</code>
    (in my case the same path as <br /> <code>/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/</code>)</p>
  	<s2 title="VII. Start Tomcat">
  		<p>Run the startup script for Tomcat (Write this in your terminal window): <br
  	<s2 title="VIII. Check that Tomcat is running">
  		<p>Point your browser to this URL: <link href="http://localhost:8080/">http://localhost:8080/</link></p>
    		<p>If everything is OK you will see the Tomcat welcome page.</p>
  	<s2 title="IX. Check that Cocoon is running">
  		<p>Point your browser to this URL: <link href="http://localhost:8080/">http://localhost:8080/cocoon/</link></p>
    		<p>Now you should be able to enjoy the Cocoon welcome page (the startup may be
a little slow the first time).</p><p>Test some of the Cocoon examples and play
around a little.</p>
  	<s2 title="X. Stop Tomcat">
  		<p>When you are finished playing you can run the shutdown script for Tomcat:<br
  	<s2 title="Yes! This seems to be working, - and now what?">
  		<p>Congratulations! You have now completed the installation and test drive of a
 servlet engine, a webserver and a servlet under Mac OS X. Need a break? - Take 5, you deserve
it! &nbsp; :-)</p>
  		<p>You are now ready to take a closer look at the examples and start doing some
<link href="ctwig-transformations.html">basic transformations</link>.</p>
  		<p>Have fun!</p> <p>Best regards,<br />
