Hi,

I have Mac OS X 10.3.6 up and running. I have never installed
any software to support studies in J2EE (including EJBs), DB with MySql,
or servlets and jsp pages. Yet, it seems that quite a lot is
already installed on the computer which is a Mac PowerPC G4.

The reason I say that it seems that quite a lot of stuff is already
installed is that when I do a search, for instance, on "JBoss"
or "MySql" or "tomcat" I get plenty of hits.

Is it true that J2EE support and MySql support is already a part of
the operating system (or more accurately, the web or application
server) without me having to install anything?

My next question would then be, okay, what switch do I turn on
to make it all start operating? For this, I'm currently hunting
through http://developer.apple.com/internet/

Thanks,
Javini Javono

Panther server comes with JBoss, Tomcat, MySQL and the tools to configure, turn on / off etc.

For the non server version of Panther you need the developer tool CD to install JBoss, Tomcat. MySQL is already installed and up and running ( i think but am not sure ). You need to go to command line to configure and start these monsters. I remember reading tutorials in apple developer site on howtos and its pretty easy.

Hi,

I did install the developer stuff. So perhaps that is why there were folders
and files out there related to JBoss, for example. Here is an example hit
for a file and folder search on "JBoss":

Macintosh HD/Library/JBoss/3.2/client/jboss-client.jar

Thanks,

MySQL is installed but not up and running, I think. My notes (from having downloaded MySQL for 10.2.6) say:

To start MySQL from the command line:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql

To administer using mysqladmin:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin

there is this safe_mysqld in mysql/bin. It will start mysql in the background. After that you have to set up an administrator password. You can google ( or beta.search.msn.com ) around on how tos. Then download a nice program called cocoamysql for administering mysql.
