Installing Tomcat 7 on Mac OS

Download the latest version of tomcat on your mac and decompress the file and issue this command to move it to /usr/local

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local<br />sudo mv ~/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.47 /usr/local

Make symbolic link to the Library folder

sudo rm -f /Library/Tomcat<br />sudo ln -s /usr/local/apache-tomcat-7.0.47 /Library/Tomcat

Change the ownership and make the script executable

sudo chown -R &lt;your_username&gt; /Library/Tomcat<br />sudo chmod +x /Library/Tomcat/bin/*.sh

instead of using tomcat script to stop and start you can use this small app http://www.activata.co.uk/downloads/ to use gui for start and stop processes
