Actually, Sree wanted Apache Tomcat. Since it's a Java app, the instructions are virtually identical to how you'd do it for Windows.
Easiest way is to go to the binary downloads which can be located via http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat, select an appropriate tomcat release as a zipfile (tarballs work the same, if they're providing them), download, and expand the archive. Then set the JAVA_HOME, CATALINA_HOME and CATALINA_BASE environment variables per the instructions.
