Monday - May 29, 2006

I've been updating my development environment today...preparing to dive into some new releases of Open Source code:

  • The Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container


  • Eclipse 3.1.2


  • Java Web Services Developer Pack 2.0


  • PostgreSQL 8.1 (contains more than 120 new features)


  • I downloaded the latest version of EMS Database Management Solutions, Inc. SQL Manager 2005 for PostgreSQL Lite (3.2.0.4) - which supports PostgreSQL 8.1


  • I'm using Sun's Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_05-b05) - but may look at updating to the latest release later this week.


    Issues Discovered

    1) Apparently, the /bin/javaw.exe reserved port 8005 - which the default installation of Tomcat 5.5 wants to use. I changed Tomcat's port to use 8010.

    2) The latest distribution of Tomcat 5.5 doesn't include the Admin interface - you have to download and install it separately.
