The JDK install instructions should be on the same site as the JDK
download. =)

I recall Sun ships JDKs as shell archives, so you can just run
	sh {archive file}

to extract the bundle.  (Change to the directory where you want the JDK
installed, of course.)


Same for Tomcat: notice, it ships as a zip or tar.gz file.  Change to
your chosen install directory, extract, run.

"Problems" is too strong a term; but it can lead people to equate
"Tomcat webapps directory" with "webserver document root."  This is not
always the case; and to not think in a J2EE frame of mind when setting
up a Tomcat environment can lead to long-term architectural problems.


: Does anyone here use tomcat by itself for major production site?  The docs say
: it can use SSL, and the gentleman above said that it can be made secure.

Search the archives.  This question comes up every so often, and plenty
of people chime in with responses.
