These installation instructions focus on setting up a servlet container and installing webMathematica. As explained previously, webMathematica is based on a standard Java technology called servlets; support for servlets is typically provided by a program called a servlet container. You must set up the servlet container before adding webMathematica.
The flow of installation is as follows:
Set up a servlet container.
Set up Mathematica using the Mathematica CD-ROM from your distribution.
Install the webMathematica web application into your servlet container using the webMathematica Tools CD-ROM from your distribution.
For Unix, you may need to set up an X server.
Possible optional installation steps.
Finally, you will test your webMathematica site.
More information on installation of webMathematica can be obtained from the Wolfram Research at https://www.wolfram.com/products/webmathematica/resources/.
