RE: JSP - How to install?


Thanks for the reply.  I just pulled down the dummy java package but I am
still getting a dependency for Java when I try to pull down tomcat.  Any
other ideas?

Thanks again,

I assumed you installed your jdk by hand (which is what I did also). 
apt only knows about software that is installed by the packaging 
system, so it is unaware of the jdk you have installed.

Fortunately, there is a dummy java package for just such such an occasion:

apt-get install java-virtual-machine-dummy java-common
