Installation and Upgrade
Install Tomcat with its default configuration using RPM.

Before you begin

  • Tomcat requires Java 8. You can use either Oracle Java or OpenJDK.
  • Make sure that the JAVA_HOME variable is correctly set to the Java home directory. For example: /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_181-amd64.
    Tip: You can set it in the /root/.bashrc file by adding the following line to it: export JAVA_HOME=$(dirname $(dirname $(readlink -e /usr/bin/java))).

The default installation also installs the following dependencies:

  • which

In case of custom installation, these dependencies must be installed beforehand.


  1. Create a file called talend.repo in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, containing the following configuration:
    name=Talend 7.2.1

    Credentials (user and password) are provided in the license email sent by Talend.

    Your repository is now ready for use.
  2. Install Tomcat with the following command:
    • To install the package with its default configuration, use the following command:
      sudo yum install talend-tomcat

      This command does not require any additional parameter. It installs the package and its dependencies with their default configuration in the default /opt/talend directory.

    • The talend-tomcat package is relocatable, meaning that you can install it in any other directory, as follows:
      rpm -i --prefix=<InstallPath> https://<user>:<password><rpm_version>/base/x86_64/talend-tomcat-9.0.30-1.x86_64.rpm

      In this case, all other applications depending on Tomcat and installed with RPM must be installed in that same folder, or with correct Tomcat parameters set for the application.
