Mark, download the latest version from the jakarta.apache website or
alternatively download the JBOSS package ( The set-up is
relatively straight forward if you have any familiarity with the UNIX
terminal in Mac OS X. If not its still not that difficult. Also make sure
you have the latest Java update from the Apple download page.

When the install notes tell you to set the path for $CATALINA_HOME you can
set this in your .profile file in your main directory (if you are using a
bash shell).

You should also download a small application called Tomcat Monitor which
enables you to start and stop Tomcat by clicking an icon in your dock rather
than having to type commands in the terminal. Can't remember where I got
this from. Possibly Apple downloads.

The main problem I had when first trying this without any familiarity with
these things was making sure the configure files were set correctly. The
documentation now has examples of config files for Mac OS X.
