Tomcat on my Pi

Posted by PEarle May 2, 2014
I decided to install Tomcat on my Pi and see what the performance is like.   First thing to do is make sure I have got the latest version of all my currently installed function - e.g. use command   sudo apt-get update     Step 1 - Install Java   Java installation is very straightforward with the following command   sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk     Once that has finished you can check that Java installed correctly  with the command java -v ...
