Does anyone know of a ppa / repo that will install tomcat7. I know I can install from source but I'd rather if possible use a PPA/Repo.
I found a nice one for sun*cough*oracle-java but there does not seem to be anything for tomcat7 as of yet.
I've installed tomcat6 without issue and like the layout. We are in the process of certifying our application for tomcat7 and I would like to have a solid production ready setup.
Here is the the cheat for installing sun*cough*oracle-java on a clean Ubuntu LTS server:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sun-java-community-team/sun-java6
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
ubuntu@ubuntu:/etc/apt$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
