    Not sure if you will be able to view the tomcat Icon in cPanel.

    But, to install servlets for a account/user, access the option Account Functions >> Install Servlets from WHM as root and select the domain on which you want to install servlets. Click in Install. This will install servlets on the account/user you have selected.

    Do post here if you still have any questions :)

    Thanks Chinmay.. I have done just that. Could you help me with this other thing... I need to install a phpbridge and i went to the site PHP/Java Bridge and downloaded the JavaBridgeTemplate.war file.

    In the above URL it says that I need to --"Copy the PHP web application JavaBridgeTemplate.war to the Tomcat webapps directory."

    How can i find the webapps directory ? DO i need to do this thru shell or can I do an FTP? Or should this be uploaded in the WEB-INF directory for the domain that i need java for.

    Or should this be installed on server for access to all ?

    AM confused .. could you help?

    Regards
    Tera

    Hi Tera,

    This presentation is wonderful for using Tomcat with cPanel:

    http://twiki.cpanel.net/twiki/pub/AllDocumentation/TrainingResources/TrainingSlides08/Tomcat.pdf

    From all I've seen, there won't be an icon. Instead, after a user unzips a .WAR, a cron will install the application, copying the content over their tomcat work folder (in /usr/local/jakarta/tomcat/work/Catalina/(domain.com)/(applicationname)). Applications are re-deployed in much the same way, rather than being deployed via the web interface as is done with Plesk (and usually, this works a lot better :) ).

    Hope that helps.

    To the best of my knowledge there is no Tomcat icon that would be shown; if this was seen it may have been from a different implementation of Tomcat, or perhaps had an additional third-party plug-in or extra software installed.

    Installing and removing JSP servlets is available via both SSH (as root) and via WHM; is this type of functionality perhaps what you were expecting?

    It will help to know, what specific functionality are you needing or looking for from a Tomcat feature accessible via cPanel?
