I’ve been wondering and playing around with FreeBSD recently as well as discovering the power of free unix operating system. So long story short I have installed FreeBSD on a virtual machine so that I can well manage it. So far I would like to enhance my operating system with free stuff and I have discovered the installation of tomcat on my freebsd. So let us get started.
First of all we need to install Java. There are two options first of all to make it clear that its very easy to install OpenJDK on freebsd because of I believe licensing issues that freebsd offers openjdk from its ports and it seems very painful to install Oracle JDK on it. So I will walk along with OpenJDK depending on your preference you may install Oracle JDK as well.
