I can't figure out which Tomcat 5.5 to download.

Based on http://www.igsobe.com/mirrors/apache/tomcat/tomcat-5/v5.5.27/README.html I would need the "Windows installer".

However, on the download page http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi there is no windows installer listed. There is a "deployer" listed but the zip file does not include a .exe .

I want to install the latest Tomcat 5.5 as a stand-alone (not a service) on Windows XP. This Tomcat will be started and stopped from the command line.

Which entry from the download page do I want?

Thanks,

The tomcat deployer is a web application that helps deploy other apps.
What you want is the zip file under "Core". Unzip that and start tomcat with by running <tomcat dir>/bin/startup.bat
