The Tomcat bundle is a .zip archive that contains the Apache Tomcat JEE application server prepackaged along with Bonita BPM web application and Bonita configuration folder (known as Bonita Home). The Tomcat bundle is a regular .zip archive based on Tomcat zip distribution.
There are threee stages to installing the Tomcat bundle:
- Download the distribution and unpack the files.
- Get and install a license. This is not necessary if you are installing the Community edition.
- Configure the database.
When these three stages are complete, you can start Tomcat to validate the installation. Then there are some post-installation setup tasks.
