Installation help for Axis on Apache Tomcat

Tomcat is widely documented in Axis's own install docs.

One common problem is related to XML parsers; A full Tomcat install, not an LE download, is better.

Also keep Tomcat up to date -Axis is only tested on the latest versions.

If you want to switch the security manager on when running Tomcat ("catalina run/start -security") then you need to edit your catalina.policy file and add the following section (You will need to adjust the directory path)

grant codeBase "file:${catalina.home}/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/lib/-" {
{{{  permission;   


Note: Tomcat 5.x is still in alpha testing. As such, testing by the development community is very limited. We recommend you use the latest Tomcat 4.x release to minimize installation difficulties.
