Next: A quick test Up: Installing Jakarta-Tomcat with Apache Previous: What is Tomcat and   Contents

The Packages

Obtaining tomcat:

apt-get install tomcat/unstable1 libapache-mod-jk
This should install Tomcat and the Apache module mod_jk, as well as jikes (a Java compiler), libxerces-java, and libservlet2.2-java. It will probably install jdk1.1 by default, but you have a choice of j2sdk1.3, j2re1.3, ibm-jdk1.1-installer, and ibm-jre1.1-installer (as of this date). For more information on using j2sdk1.3 with Tomcat, please see Section [*].
