Tomcat 5



Matt Raible is slogging through Tomcat 5:

It sure would be nice to have a binary version of Tomcat 5. I tried building it this morning, and the process is still going – you have to download about 5 different libraries (so far) just to get it to build! I find this is typical with Jakarta project. Hopefully there will be one soon. I’ll try to document the process so others don’t have to experience my pain.

I remember similar headaches while trying to install Axis on Tomcat 4.  Many libraries were included amd getting the server operational was easy.  I ended up having to track down several more libraries in order to work on the client side.

Of course, you could always just sit a box in the corner and have Gump run every 24 hours…
