I'm learning how to develop Servlets & JSPs for a job interview and I want to install Tomcat 5.5.x on my Mac. I see that there is a "Windows Service Installer" but I don't see an installer for "Mac OS X". Does this mean that I need to download the source and build it as some kind of Mac/Unix software?
Can somebody point me in the right direction to get Tomcat 5.5.x to work on a Mac?
OSX is Unix. Download the tar.gz file. Unzip it to the directory where you want to keep Tomcat. Follow the instructions for a unix install. Start the server by running the TOMCAT_INSTALL/bin/startup.sh file.
