Has anyone gotten Tomcat 5.5.X to work on OS X? I have installed it, chmod'd the files, and set the environment variables. When I start Tomcat, it lists the environment variables and does not give any error messages. However, when I try to view http://localhost:8080 from my web browser, It can not find the host. When I shutdown Tomcat, I receive a message stating that Tomcat 5 is designed for J2SE 5.0 and I need to install it or a compatability pack from the Tomcat site. Is this why Tomcat is not working? Can anyone tell me how to install j2se 5.0 on OS X? I thought this won't come out until tiger is released? Or, does anyone have a link to and instructions on how to install this 'compatability pack'? I am studying the Head First JSP book and would like to use Tomcat 5 if possible. Thanks in advance!
Tomcat 5.5 requires j2se 5.0. The newer version of j2se is not yet available for os x. I tried tomcat 5.5 on j2se 1.4.2, it did'nt work. I am not sure when its going to come out.I have'nt came across any problem running example in HFS book on os x so far.
