See below. 1. What package I need to download to install Tomcat. in my mac as well as Windows. 2. Do I have to download and install j2ee as well from java.sun.com. Thanks siva
* apache-tomcat-[version].zip or .tar.gz: base distro, all non-embedded users download this. * apache-tomcat-[version].exe: Windows installer with base distro contents + Windows installation. * apache-tomcat-[version]-admin.zip or .tar.gz: the Tomcat Administration webapp only. * apache-tomcat-[version]-compat.zip or .tar.gz: required in addition to the base distro for using tomcat with a Java 1.4 environment. * apache-tomcat-[version]-deployer.zip or .tar.gz: the standalone Tomcat Web Application Deployer. * apache-tomcat-[version]-embed.zip or .tar.gz: for using Tomcat only as an embedded servlet container.
Just the first one. It should fill your needs for both windows and mac. No, you don't need to install the J2EE stuff for tomcat as it contains the parts it requires, but you may want to have a look at finding the servlet.jar if you plan on writing your own servlets.
