Subject RE: installing tomcat 4.1.27 on linux
Date Fri, 13 Aug 2004 13:08:15 GMT
You can find RPM distros for Tomcat on -- they do a good
job.  They use a standard Linux layout.

Or you can download the Tomcat .zip or .tar.gz distributions and unpack
them yourself.  Obviously the .exe distro is for Windows only.  These
distributions use a standard Tomcat structure.  This will result in your
getting more support on the mailing list and in general.  So both
approaches have advantages.

As others have said, Tomcat is a Java product.  The only native parts,
which are therefore different on Linux from Windows, are some of the web
server connectors e.g. mod_jk, and the daemon invocation mechanism (jsvc
on unix, procrun on windows).
