I'm developing Servlet software that needs to use Tomcat.
The software will be run on Max OS 90% and PC 10%.
I don't know there's a available version of Tomcat on Max OS or not?
Otherwise, how to use Tomcat on Mac OS?
Please help I need suggestion for use servlet on Mac OS.
Thank you.

Since Tomcat is 100% Java there is no obstacle to running on the Mac that I know of. One of the guys here at LANWrights got it running on his Mac 10 (or however you are supposed to refer to the latest release of the OS)

I'm developing this java project but I don't know much about Mac OS.
I see Tomcat files, they're .jar files. So, I think it should run on Mac OS. But I don't know how to start or stop it, because now I have Tomcat on my MS Windows, I use .bat file to run.
Bill, I read your book 'Java 2 Exam Cram', it's a very good book. I passed SCJP last two months. I read your book only for testing. I'm so happy that talk to you at this discussion board.

I think it depends on which version of the Mac OS you have because Java support was limited in earlier versions. In the demo I saw on the latest OS, just clicking on the Jar file started it up.
