Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2007 3:37 PM (in response to lindstromfoto)I too would love to know how one can update Tomcat on Mac OS X Server. Our company is thinking of using a product that requires Tomcat 4.1.30 or later and the version that ships with OS X server is 4.1.29... Ideally, i would like to be able to run Tomcat 5.5.x
Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2007 5:30 PM (in response to lindstromfoto)If you're asking here, the answer is probably no.
It is possible to build and install later versions of all the Mac OS X Server-bundled apps, including Apache, Tomcat, postfix, bind, etc., etc., but in most cases once you do you lose the ability to drive them via Server Admin.
Server Admin knows what it knows - more importantly it doesn't know any of the features of later versions of the apps (it may work with point released (e.g. Apache 1.3.20 -> 1.3.30, but it won't work with major versions like 1.3 -> 2.0).
So if you go that way you're on your own as far as configuring and maintaining the service is concerned.
Leopard (10.5) will include later versions of these apps if you're prepared to wait.Mac OS X (10.4.8)
