Dear All,
I want to get some information about installation of tomcat and jboss in linux for owr web application. As we know that there different linux product available in the market such as Redhat linux, SUSE Enterprise linux and sun solaris with different versions.
Can it be possible to install the tomcat or JBOSS in all the linux versions.If it is possible can you tell me how to install the tomcat in linux. Also i want to know whether there is same procedure for to intall the tomcat in all the versions.Can i use the internet explorer 6.x and Firefox 1.5 as the browser for the application with tomcat or JBOSS installed in linux.

Please reply me back as soon as possible.

Thanks and regards

Yes, Tomcat and JBoss can be installed on all the major Linux distros.
Regarding how to do that, you really should read the respective products' user and installation manuals.

Oh, and if you post any follow-up questions on the topic, please do so at the proper forums (these are product-specific questions, not Linux/UNIX questions).

Also, Solaris is not a kind of Linux! Solaris is Sun's version of UNIX; Linux is an entirely separate GPL version of UNIX.
