How to extract files with extension tar.gz. I have downloaded the file for mysql but unable to configure it with tomcat.
Any help will be appreciated.

Use gunzip utility to uncompress the tar file.
gunzip test.jar.gz
The output for this will give test.jar
now use
tar -xvf test.jar
Hope this will help you.

Depends on what platform you wish to do it on. Ona unix/Linux system use gunzip and then tar as described above. On a Windows system, the easiest way is to open the file with WinZip, which understands the format and can extract it to a directory of your choosing.
