Apache Tomcat implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP)
specifications from Sun Microsystems, and provides a "pure Java" HTTP
web server environment for Java code to run. This package contains
only the startup scripts for the system-wide daemon. No documentation
or web applications are included here, please install the tomcat6-docs
and tomcat6-examples packages if you want them. Install the authbind
package if you need to use Tomcat on ports 1-1023. Install
tomcat6-user instead of this package if you don't want Tomcat to start
as a service.

Known Limitations and Issues
The tomcat6 charm has been replaced by another charm with more features.
The tomcat charm contains
all features of the tomcat6 charm with additional functionality and additional
A simple deployment consists of a Tomcat service:
juju deploy tomcat6
That deploys Apache Tomcat version 6 on an Ubuntu image.
To expose Tomcat to the Internet:
juju expose tomcat6
You can then browse to http://tomat6-ip-address:8080 to see the default Tomcat
page. Be patient the page takes a few minutes to load.
The Apache Tomcat software contains a Web Application Manager that allows remote
deployment of web applications. This process requires authentication and this
charm defaults to username='admin' password='admin'
This charm has no configuration options exposed in Juju, just deploy the charm
and start using Tomcat 6!
Go to http://tomcat6-ip-address:8080/manager to access the Tomcat Web
Application Manager. Authenticate with 'admin' username and 'admin' password.
