2. Installation

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
