Installing Tomcat 7 on OS X Yosemite

I needed to install Tomcat 7 on my new MacBook Pro running OS X Yosemite, and I knew I wanted to take advantage of Homebrew.  As expected, it was a breeze.

  1. In your terminal, do “brew install tomcat7”
  2. Type “catalina start”
  3. Navigate to http://localhost:8080

In my case, I was running version 7.0.63 with Java 1.8.0.51.  Easy as pie!
