Tomcat 7 is a Servlet Container – a fairly light weight container, very convenient for development and testing. While not a full application server, Tomcat implements the functionality described in the Java Enterprise Edition Web profile specifications. Most notably, it supports version 3.0 of the Servlet API (application programming interface) and version 2.2 of JavaServer Pages, both part of the recently ratified JEE 6.
Installing Tomcat 7 is dead-easy and configuring Tomcat as Server in NetBeans to allow direct (re)deployment of web applications from within NetBeans is just as easy. Still, a brief blog article explaining the steps – for even easier lives for Java Web developers. And as testimonial to the ease of use the development teams behind Tomcat and NetBeans provide to the world of Java developers.
