I am on an UNIX ( SUN SOLARIS) machine in a multi user envioronment.

I needed to run tomcat...

On inspection I find 2 directory which refer to tomcat...

1> /var/apache..

ompmum4 rchakra> pwd
/var/apache
ompmum4 rchakra> ls
cgi-bin htdocs icons logs proxy servlets tomcat
ompmum4 rchakra> more tomcat

*** tomcat: directory ***

ompmum4 rchakra> ls -las

This is leading to confusion...

I need to know ........

a> whether the tomcat under apache directory is the one that can work as servlet container?

b>OR i need to install the jakarta-tomcat separately ....

c>If case b above is true then what is the purpose of the tomcat references lying in the machine...

Pl help

Somebody else may have installed it or it may have shipped with the OS.
When working on a Linux box, I ususally like to start with a clean install of Tomcat. You would have to check with your system administrator to see if this is possible or if you will need to use the existing one.
