Hi,
Can you tell me which tomcat to download as per learning.
I went to "apache.tomcat" site where i found "beta version" and "binary distributions"

In binary distribution

Core:
zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)
Windows Executable (pgp, md5)

Deployer:
zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)

Embedded:
zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)
Administration Web Application:
zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)

JDK 1.4 Compatability Package:
zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)

Documentation (Already Included in Core Downloads):
tar.gz (pgp, md5)


Source Code Distributions
tar.gz (pgp, md5)
zip (pgp, md5)

I have these options and few in the beta version also.
Do i need to download all the files all or only selective ones.

Which platform are you going to run Tomcat on?

If it's Windows, download the v5.5.17 Core Windows Executable here:

http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi

If you're running on Linux/Unix get the tar.gz file.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
