Subject RE: Question about Linux install of Tomcat 3.2 (is there an RPM y et)
Date Tue, 12 Dec 2000 22:21:21 GMT
I do not have SSL working yet but it need eventually.
I am using Sun's jdk 1.3.
And, thanks for the RPM's. I have not tried it yet but it looks like a
breeze. At first, I was like "how do I know that is is ok?" and everyone
seems to know your stuff (except a newbie like me who does JWS on NT by day
and am just trying out linux/apache/tomcat by night).
take care,

My RPMs do all the jobs. You can even rebuild them if you like.

Often RPMs start their life as contributed RPMS.
If there is a demande Redhat could incorporate them in main
distribution or add them to the powertools.

They allready do that for many of my contrib RPMs....
