An easy-to-install and easy-to-use appliance for deploying the Apache Tomcat software
Bitnami Tomcat Stack is a free and cross-platform software project that helps anyone to deploy the Apache Tomcat application and its runtime dependencies on any computer operating system. It includes ready-to-run versions of Apache, Tomcat, MySQL and Java software.
What is Apache Tomcat?
Apache Tomcat is an open source and powerful web-based application developed by the Apache Software Foundation and designed to be used for powering numerous mission-critical and large-scale web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations. It simplifies the development and deployment of Java applications.
Installing Bitnami Tomcat Stack
Bitnami provides users with native installers for the Tomcat software, which have been built using the BitRock InstallBuilder multiplatform installer development tool. You can easily install Tomcat and all of its dependencies on your GNU/Linux distribution, as well as on the Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating system by downloading the package that corresponds to your computer’s hardware architecture, run it and follow the on-screen instructions.
Run Apache Tomcat on the cloud
Thanks to Bitnami, which provides pre-built cloud images for the Amazon EC2 and Windows Azure cloud hosting providers, users can run the Apache Tomcat application on the cloud or on their own hosting platform without having to pay for expensive products.
Virtualizing Apache Tomcat
Besides installing Apache Tomcat on your computer using the native installers or deploy on the cloud using the Amazon and Azure cloud images, you can also virtualize it using the pre-built virtual machine images based on the latest LTS release of the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu, and designed to support the VMware ESX, ESXi and Oradcle VirtualBox virtualization software.
Is there a Bitnami Tomcat Module for my BitNami LAMP server?
Unfortunately, at the moment, Bitnami does not provide a module for the Apache Tomcat application for deploying it on an existing Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server.
