It works nicely with Tomcat 6.0.33 as an alternative to going to the Terminal and issuing the commands. If you often restart for some reason, like when developing, that's often.

It does not however find the path to Tomcat 6 automatically, but pasting the proper path to the Tomcat installation folder is all the set up you need to do.

It would be nice to set up autostart and using alternative configuration files, but it's better do one thing almost perfectly than trying to do everything.

I appreciate the review, and I'm glad you liked the product. Though I'm flattered with the praise for the feature, this preference pane does not auto-detect where Tomcat is installed on your machine. The supplied address is where my own personal copy of Tomcat is installed, nothing more. I welcome any and all feedback and suggestions. Please send them to petern@cs.montana.edu

Works well. It automatically detects where my Tomcat is installed.
