Using Tomcat with an existing LAMP platform
I just installed Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL and PHP on a RH 8 box and have everything up and running without a hitch.
I also wanted to set up an environment for working with and learning JSP/Servlets. I installed the JDK and Tomcat and have it running at port 8080 without a hitch, which will suffice for my basic testing and learning.
My question involves eventually linking Tomcat up with Apache so I can use JSP on a project-by-project basis (with vhosts) where it might be applicable. I was reading a tutorial here at DevShed that showed how to use JServ to link Apache with a servlet engine, but after reading some of JServ docs I learned (apparently?) that the project is in stasis for now and that the INSTALL for JServ recommended using Tomcat to take advantages of new developments in the servlet engine.
I guess all of this has led to some confusion on my part. I know a little bit of Java but haven't applied it in anything web relevant yet, and I was wondering if someone might be able to explain or point me in the right direction so I can start to accomplish what I described above. I'd like to learn how to set up Tomcat so it can work with my existing environment (on a development box) so it'll be one less thing to do later when I want to put in my production environment.
As always, thanks for your help everyone

Yeah, this looks to be a better module for what I want to do. The old JServ required me install an older servlet thing (JSDK 2.0) which almost seemed to be separate from Tomcat itself. Thanks for the help!
