Hmmm... I keep thinking that I should write up some of the stuff I put out on this list more formally and stick it on a web site somewhere. Wotthehell, I'm willing to give this a go this weekend. But first, what exactly is missing from the referenced article? http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/java-tomcat/index.html This seems pretty comprehensive to me, although it could do with a few small updates to cover the latest versions of java and tomcat. Any other topics? Getting the java plugin to work with Mozilla should be mentioned, but that's one of those things where it should "just work" by installing the jdk13 port, so it's hard to know what else to say on the subject.
