IMPORTANT NOTE


As of this writing the default project you will download, import and use in this class is
not

enabled for
Tomcat. If you truly need to use Tomcat for this course


please contact your IBM representative,
and they will see if there is a Tomcat
-
specific project you can obtain.



That said


in general, you may wish to install and configure Tomcat as your application
server, in order to run (test) your development work using RBDe. You actually have your
choice of a number of application servers to run with, including: WebSphere Application
Server, Tomcat, BEA’s WebLogic, etc.



Someone may already have installed and configured the Tomcat application server for you.
If this is the case, or if you’re going to use WebSphere Application Server (WAS) you should
skip ahead to the next step in this process. If not, we recommend you use Tomcat. Please
follow the steps below to install and configure.



In a Web browser, go to the Apache Tomcat Web page:
http://tomcat.apache.org.


Click the Download link for Tomcat 5.x.


On the download page, find the most recent version of Tomcat with a version
number like 5.5.x, such as 5.5.23. Several downloads are available for each
version. Do not use versions marked as ″alpha″ or ″beta.″


Under the 5.5.x version of Tomcat, look under Binary Distributions and then
under Core.


Download the Core version of Tomcat 5.5.x for your operating system. For
Windows, select the ZIP file. For Linux, select the TAR.GZ file.

Installing and configuring Tomcat


Unzip the file you downloaded and place the server files in an appropriate
location on your computer. It isn’t important where you put the server files as
long as you can find them again later.


You must now give Tomcat the proper driver file for the database. Find a file
named
derby.jar

located at:


<Product_Install_Directory>
\
SDP70
\
runtimes
\
base_v61
\
derby
\
lib
\


Copy/paste this
derby.jar

file to


<Tomcat_Install_Directory>
\
common
\
lib
