Did you use gnu tar as advised in the procedure ?
Did you properly copy the admin directory to the webapps one ?

The procedure is the same for Unix/Linux and Solaris.
When you say it's not working what you mean exactly?

From this, it looks like SXDE comes with tomcat. You can use pkgrm to remove the packages (SUNWtcatr, SUNWtcatu) if you want.
To install the binary from apache, just read the RUNNING.txt in the directory you have extracted the downloaded binary.

And by the way, the fact there was two tomcat installations on your machine is likely to explain why you failed to install the administration webapp. You were certainly using the wrong directory.

I guess instead of CLI you mean from source.
I think installing the binaries is OK, unless you want to contribute in tomcat development!
