Setup Ubuntu for Java/Tomcast Development

When it snows in Seattle, i stay at home and try new things... This year it is Installing Ubuntu on an old desktop that is not really used so that I can turn that none preforming vista box into a nice fast PC for my SON and Server for me.

Here is what i had to do to get my PC to work under ubuntu so that i can develop and deploy java apps to tomcat.

  1. Download and install the ubuntu OS.

  2. enable SSH
    sudo apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client

  3. Install Java
    sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jdk

  4. install SVN
    sudo apt-get install subversion

  5. install VNC Server
    sudo apt-get install x11vnc vnc-java
    x11vnc -storepasswd
    i shutdown the firewall - Local Lan so i don't need it ...

  6. install mysql server

  7. install tomcat

  8. install eclipse
