Installing Apache Tomcat on Windows7

- Installing tomcat on Windows 7
- Download Apache Tomcat from the website
- Unzip it
- Place the folder in a directory suitable for your system
e.g. C:\Program Files\Whatever
- If the classpath is correctly set, at the command prompt, navigate to the \bin folder of your apache-tomcat- (If not there's a previous post that will tell you how to do that).
- run startup.bat to start it up
- shutdown.bat to stop the server
- check with your browser if the server is correctly running, by typing in the address bar, http://localhost:8080
- Apache's Tomcat web page should load with no problem
- Now you're ready to develop your best web apps.
