CatSlapper helps you more easily start, stop and restart Tomcat.

CatSlapper makes controlling Tomcat as easy as pushing a button. How many times have you tried to control one Tomcat only to find out your environment was set to control a different one? Well you can forget about that hassle from now on. CatSlapper takes the pain out of managing multiple Tomcats.

What's New

Version 1.1.3:
  • This version can control and install versions 5.0.x and 5.5.x of Tomcat. For now, other versions of Tomcat are not supported yet (but they might work).


  • Mac OS X 10.4 or later
  • XCode Tools Java SDK (or at least a Java Development Kit installed for compiling JSPs)

WTH is a 'tomcat'??? I've been using Macs for 2 years now, rather intensively, and NEVER came across this term until this posting.

Why would I need a tool to manage something that I've never seen on my computer, except by some other more common name?

Tomcat is the reference implementation for Java Application Servers. It's a free. open-source project run by the Apache Foundation and is commonly used by Java Web application developers on their workstations to deploy and test their compiled code.

CatSlapper is designed primarily for Java Web developers and administrators to make managing a lot of Tomcat instances with different configurations easier.

Thanks for your interest!
