This tutorial will guide you through setting up Tomcat and Cocoon to serve XML pages, then you will create a DTD, XML file and three XSL stylesheets so that you can view your data in your desktop browser, a cell phone browser and a pdf file.
If you do not already have java installed you will need jdk 1.1 or higher. You can get the Linux jdk from http://blackdown.org
For this tutorial you will need:
Tomcat 3.2.1 For this tutorial we will use the binary build. Get it at http://jakarta.apache.org/site/binindex.html. In a production environment you would also want to download the Apache web server and configure Apache and Tomcat to work together. In the interest of keeping this tutorial a reasonable length we will not be configuring Tomcat and Apache to work together. So you will be accessing Tomcat directly using port 8080 instead of the usual port 80. If you want to configure Apache to pass requests on to Tomcat see the documentation at the jakarta web site.
UP SDK from phone.com (now openware.com) Unfortunately you must register before downloading the sdk and it only works on Windows. If you are going through this tutorial in Linux you will need another Windows machine to use the phone browser. Get it at http://www.phone.com/products/index.html
