I’m a complete tomcat beginner – (I installed it on my CentOS-6.3 server this morning.) According to the web-interface on port 8080 tomcat is running fine.
Basically, I want to allow a Java program I have written (which works well) to be run over the internet. This is to test students understanding of Turing machines. The student has to enter a short “program” (consisting of 20-80 “quadruples”). My program will then test if the program does what it is meant to do. So the student enters his program (about 1k), eg by pasting from a file – the program should then run, and the student should see what it outputs.
I’m looking for advice on the best way to set this up. As I understand it, tomcat can either be run “standalone” or “behind apache”. I am running httpd on the server, so either method should be available. It seems that the standalone option is simpler, so I would probably prefer that.
Any and all suggestions gratefully received.
