Joe, I have been using Tomcat for quite a while on the 400. It works pretty well for us. I would look at Tomcat 4.0.1. I put some shell scripts out on the iSeries-tookit website at http://iseries-toolkit.sourceforge.net that will start Tomcat. Follow the Anon CVS link through \CVSROOT\src\sh. The scripts are called catalina400.sh and endcatalina400.sh. On a V4R5 system you need to add an export to set the JDK to 1.3. Those scripts do not use a security manager or any of the other startup options. It is based on the standard Tomcat 4.0.1 in startup shell script so it shouldn't be hard to add what you need. If your system is current on PTFs and you are running the 1.3 or 1.2.2 JDK, you can usually have Tomcat running in less than an hour this way. I intend to add some installation instructions in the next week or so to the iSeries-toolkit site that walk someone through the necessary steps. If there is any interest, I would also add Struts and updated Cocoon instructions. David Morris >>> joepluta@PlutaBrothers.com 01/03/02 12:23PM >>> Thanks, Carl. I appreciate the input. This is similar to what I had heard. The thing I learned since my last post is that the adminclient software comes with the order of the 5733AS3 LPO. Even though it's a free product, it has to be separately ordered. My client is busy trying to get all those pieces in place. There is also indeed a place on the IFS where the adminclient resides: \QIBM\ProdData\WebASAdv\hosts\default_host\admin\install I don't have the exact instructions, but basically I think it boils down to unzipping the appropriate JAR file (AIX, NT or Sun) onto your workstation. Your info on the standard edition is also correct. As of version 4.0 of Websphere, there is no longer a standard edition. While not horrifically expensive, the $4000 for the Advanced Edition is hard to justify if you don't need EJB support. Since we don't require EJB, we're going to have a Tomcat version of our product available, probably by the end of the quarter. Joe > From: Carl Galgano > > I have done one WebSphere install on 5.1.
