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.

Installation can take the following steps:

1.  Set up a servlet container.

2.  Set up Mathematica using the CD-ROM from your distribution or from your download.

3.  Install the webMathematica web application into your servlet container using the webMathematica Tools CD-ROM from your distribution or from your download.

4.  For Unix, you may need to set up an X server.

5.  Finally, you should test your webMathematica site.
