How to install Tomcat 8 on Windows 8 with Java 8


To install Tomcat 8 -> Install Java 8 on Windows 8

Download Tomcat 8

Open Tomcat Home Directory

These are some of the key tomcat directories:

  • /bin – Startup, shutdown, and other scripts. The *.sh files (for Unix systems) are functional duplicates of the *.bat files (for Windows systems). Since the Win32 command-line lacks certain functionality, there are some additional files in here.
  • /conf – Configuration files and related DTDs. The most important file in here is server.xml. It is the main configuration file for the container.
  • /logs – Log files are here by default.
  • /webapps – This is where your webapps go.

Open Command Prompt and run startup.bat from Tomcat Home
