Yes, we run Tomcat on Solaris at work.

Solaris supports a bunch of web servers. Apache and iPlanet come to mind, but I'm sure there are more.

I have been trying to set up tomcat under my Solaris 8. Can't get it to work. I got the tomcat tar.gz file and then I gunzipped the file, but I am not able to correctly untar the file because the Solaris tar does not work. I need to find a GNU tar, where can I find it? And will everything be OK after I get the GNU tar?

Why not just use the zip version? You could always unzip it on a Win machine and then FTP the unzipped files over to the Solaris box.

I am having difficulty running Tomcat4 on my Solaris 8 system.
Look here:
# startup.sh
The JAVA_HOME environment variable is not defined
This environment variable is needed to run this program
I am not very familiar with the Solaris system. Please kindly tell me where and how I should set the JAVA_HOME environment variable, OK? Thanks a lot.
I checked the catalina.sh file, and did see quite a few places where we have words like "JAVA_HOME", but don't know how to handle them.

Great! It worked! Thanks a lot. Anyway, if I can't find an easy way to do it, this is good enough.

u can put it in the .bashrc or .profile files so everytime u logon it is set.
Depends on which shell u use.
