9. Building Tomcat from Source

Chapter 9. Building Tomcat from Source

Because Tomcat is an open source project, some people may prefer to build it from source code. Beware that building Tomcat is not as simple as downloading the binary releases; in fact, we recommend that you start with the binary release. Get it installed and running, and work on your configuration. Then, when you have a bit of spare time (we know, administrators seldom, if ever, have spare time), start downloading the bits and pieces needed to build Tomcat, and start playing with the source distribution. This way, if the build from source doesn't work at first, as it well may not, you will still have a working binary release.

Warning

Most people should not build Tomcat from source. The official release binaries from http://tomcat.apache.org are multiplatform, and building Tomcat is not necessarily easy.
