Hi,

I've made a web app using servlets and JSP, and the server I was to load them on was a MS IIS 6.0 server, but it was dropped for a Unix machine.

I've never run servlets off a Unix machine before, can someone direct me to a walkthrough from start to finish as to how what to install and how to configure everything? I know it's a lot to ask for, and I'd appreciate any help available.

Thanks,
Jason

Unless you've written machine specific code, (hard-coded file separators etc..) the procedure should be exactly the same.

I work all day on a webapp from my Linux workstation, build on another, QA and other members of the development team run it on Windows boxes and the product is shipped out to customer's running both.

It's Java.



What were you using as your servlet container/JSP engine with IIS?

What are you installing on your UNIX machine? Just a tomcat installation?

The procedures for that should be pretty clear on the tomcat website.

To Ben:
I developed the site and was going to serve it using Tomcat 5, but I'm so inexperienced using IIS and making a Tomcat connector has been impossible so far as I can't seem to find a configuration that works for me.

To Cameron:
I haven't been given the Unix box yet, but I've been told Apache is installed already. Should I just install tomcat as directed, dump my web app in the appropriate tomcat folder and it would be ready to go? Or is there more work involved?

Thanks again,
Jason
