There doesn't seem to be documented anywhere an exact list of steps to get
this stuff in the right order, which to compile first, etc.

To get ant.jar I had to download the jakarta-tomcat-ant BINARIES.

I set the classpath as you suggested

Then I ran the jakarta-tomkcat SOURCE and made it through the

Now I've got an error after running the test:

# bin/ ant -buildfile conf/test-tomcat.xml
Guessing TOMCAT_HOME from to bin/..
Setting TOMCAT_HOME to bin/..
bin/ /usr/local/jdk1.1.8/: permission denied

I'm su'd to root

Resin is starting to look better and better...

Thanks for the help.

The '' script uses the 'ant' build tool, which
lives in 'ant.jar'.  You'll need to add 'ant.jar'
to your classpath.  If you don't have ant.jar,
you'll need to download the distribution for ant.

Your classpath will then look something like:


This will, of course, grow as you find other libraries
that must be included.  (For example, you'll soon need the
'servlet.jar', 'jaxp.jar', and 'parser.jar' libraries.
The first is a Jakarta project, the other two
are from Sun's JAXP XML parser.)

The good news:  You're on the right track.
