Sure, I develop on OS X with Tomcat as my test container.

1: Download the tar.gz binary.  Try to download it without letting Safari
automatically unpack it.

2: open a terminal and run: `gnutar xzf jakarata-tomcat-*.tar.gz`

3: change directory into jakarata-tomcat-*

4: create the file: bin/ and enter these two lines:

export JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home

5: start tomcat by either running `./bin/` or `./bin/

6: point your browser to http://localhost:8080/
