If you've done any work in the Java environment, you've no doubt heard about Java server pages (JSP) and Java servlets. These programming languages allow you to produce dynamic web applications using Java and HTML code. The Apache project has spun off a sister project called Tomcat, which provides a web server along with JSP and a Java servlet processor, all in one application.
The Ubuntu server installation allows you to install a complete Tomcat server by selecting it from the installation menu. There's nothing to configure—just load the package and you're ready to start hosting JSP or Java servlet applications from your Ubuntu server.
