Lesson 10: Install Apache Tomcat

You can use Apache Tomcat to display the web page and to run the EGL-generated service.

Download and access the server

If you have IBM® WebSphere® Application Server installed, you can skip to the next lesson. In any case, you can download Apache Tomcat, if necessary, and make it available in the workbench.

To gain access to server:

  1. Locate the Servers view, which is by default at the lower right of the workbench. EGL created an AJAX Test Server by default. Right-click the empty space and click New > Server.
    The New->Server drop-down menu.
  2. In the Define a New Server window, expand Apache and click Tomcat v6.0 Server. Accept the default values for the other fields. Click Next.
  3. In the Tomcat Server window, access the open-source software either by using the Browse to find an existing installation directory (for example, apache-tomcat-6.0.26) on your machine; or click Download and Install. If you found an existing installation directory, click Finish and skip the installation steps.
    The New Server wizard requests an installation directory.
    Accept the terms of the license agreement. Browse to a directory for the application files, such as C:\Program Files\Apache. While the workbench completes the installation, the Define a New Server window is displayed with the installation directory specified. Progress is shown at the lower right of the workbench.
  4. When the installation is completed, click Finish.
  5. Start the server by highlighting the server name and clicking the green Start icon at the top of the Server view.
    The green Start icon.
