Jan K. Labanowski: "Tomcat, servlets, JSPs and other friends"

Tomcat organization

The main directories in Tomcat tree under /var/tomcat4 are:

  • bin -- normally, when you download the binary tar Tomact distribution, this directory contains a lot of various scripts. The RPMs do not have this stuff which is probably an "ommission". You probably should download the binary tar distribution and copy these scripts to this directory.
  • classes -- classes to be used by web applications but not TOMCAT.
  • lib -- JAR files with classes to be used by web applications but not TOMCAT.
  • common -- classes (in classes) and JAR files (in lib) which are available both to TOMCAT engine (Catalina) and web applications.
  • conf -- configuration files.
  • logs -- where the logs are.
  • jasper -- JAR files visible only by Jasper (JSP compiler).
  • server -- classes and JAR files for TOMCAT engine (CATALINA) only.
  • webapps -- Web applications
  • work -- Scratch directory where Tomcat keeps Java source derived from JSP, and compiled classes for servlets.
