I need to practice writing some Java applications.

I have Ubuntu 13.04 on my system. Can any one help me install Tomcat (version 5 or above) and tell me how to start and stop the server.

What's wrong with the documentation? The answer is essentially:

sudo apt-get install tomcat7

If you want a per-user instance installation (easier for development when starting-and-stopping are desirable) you can install the tomcat7-user package and use the utilities it provides (eg tomcat7-instance-create). This is all stuff covered by the documentation.

Note: tomcat6 and tomcat6-user packages are also available. tomcat5 is no longer packaged or recommended.
