I am a java developer mainly coding on win environment. I am planning to move to Ubuntu and I would like to know what is the best way to setup my jave, ide, maven and others.
Under Windows I would typically have a D:\dev dir (note D:\ is an SSD drive) in which I put apache-tomcat, apache-maven jdk and so on, but under linux (ubuntu) the directory hierarchy seems to be very important.
If I correctly understand I should install my eclipse and servers under /opt and maybe /usr/local. Unfortunately this way I will not profit from my fast SSD drive under /dev/sdb that I usually mount on /media/fast.
This leads to my question. What is the "appropriate" way of installing and configuring the "usual" set of dev instruments for a java developer under ubuntu like
- apache tomcat
Note * My question is somewhat similar to this one: Best Setup for a Java EE Developer Machine which was not very well answered imo.
