Well, If you are going to write java stuff, I'd suggest you have the jdk.
Since you're using tomcat 4, you should get jdk1.4
Regardless of apache, for the tomcat setup, you'll need to set a JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME environment variables.
You'll want to make sure you have the tomcat source, so you'll need to download the src package as well. This is required because the apache module will come from the tomcat source.
Within the source, there is a src/native/apache directory. Somewhere in there you'll need to get the module out of it and put it in with the rest of the apache modules. I'm at work now, so that's about all I can get off the top of my head.
If you do a bit of a search in linux.org for tomcat/apache I think you'll find an article that will run you through the details.
be warned, though, it sets up tomcat for service on another machine than localhost. (thus the subdomain) If you need to setup on localhost, just replace the (main) ServerName in httpd.conf with localhost, then add the appropriate IfModule statement at the bottom.
In an attempt to install TomCat in Linux, I did the following.
1. Download the RPM from the Apache website
2. Installed JSDK and JRE succesfully including setting the environment path variables for these.
2. rpm -ivh <rpm filename>
3. The installation took place successfully but I am not sure where I should place the JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME settings inside. Is it tomcat.conf, .bash_profile ...?
4. I couldn't find startup.sh and shutdown.sh.
Installing in Windows is so much easier. I just needed to include the env variables inside the system information and enter startup.bat and the TomCat page appeared in Internet Explorer.
