Subject FYI: Building tomcat on SunOS 5.8 (RESEND)
Date Sun, 26 May 2002 00:38:22 GMT

Just for the record, here are the steps I used over the past 2 days to
successfully build tomcat on a fresh SunOS 5.8 machine.

1. get J2SE 1.4
2. get ant 5.1Beta1 (grab zip format as SunOS tar is broken)
3. get a "cvs" binary for Sparc
4. configure "cvs" to access (I had to tunnel using ssh)
5. use cvs to pull down "jakarta-tomcat-4.0"
6. use cvs to pull down "jakarta-tomcat-connector"
7. use "ant download" to get other needed bits
    - mkdir /usr/local; chmod a+wr /usr/local
    - in the jakarta-tomcat-4.0/ dir, copy "" to
      "" and enable proxy access (behind firewall here)
    - do "ant download" to automatically grab needed packages into 
8. edit "jakarta-tomcat-4.0/build.xml" and add in this property
    <property name="build.compiler"   value="modern"/>
9. edit "jakarta-tomcat-4.0/build.xml" and
    remove the "commons-dbcp" section, it doesnt seem to be compiling.
10. ant
