For the official instructions (Tomcat 8), read this page
The following instructions are for development servers only:
Step 1: Create a keystore file to store the server’s private key and self-signed certificate:
"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool" -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA
$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA
You will be asked for various information. Remember the password you typed at this step.
At the end of the procedure, keytool will create a file named “.keystore” to your home directory. By default it is hidden. This file should be moved to Apache-Tomcat home directory and can be renamed (eg to “keystore”).
Step 2: Disable APR:
Edit server.xml and comment out the following line:
Step 3: Activate the SSL connector
Edit server.xml and add (or uncomment and modify) the following lines:
You will have you replace “12345678” with your password.
You will also have to replace “keystore” with the full path to the keystore file generated at Step 1.
Step 4: Restart Tomcat
Do not forget to restart Apache-Tomcat
Netbeans is a great free IDE, one I recommend to all beginners.
For C/C++ coding, it has one important drawback though: -Wall is not selected by default, which is something absolutely required for beginners.
For this reason, I have created my own template (-wall, run at external terminal, valgrind configuration etc) which is available here
In the following page you can find how to create and use one of your own:
Basically you point the IDE to an existing NetBeans project and tell it to use that as a template. You use a module project as a wrapper: This will allow you to turn the template project into an NBM file (“NetBeans Module”) that can be installed into the IDE like a plugin. After installing the custom plugin, the template project will appear in the “New Project” wizard. This is how you do it:
- Take a NetBeans project that you want to be the template project, and open it in the IDE. Let’s call it FooApp.
- Create an empty NetBeans Module project. Name it something recognizable (such as FooAppTemplate or whatever).
- In the Projects window, right-click the empty module project. Create a new file by choosing New > Other > Module Development > Project Template from the context menu.
- Use the Template Wizard to configure the template. Point it to the template project FooApp and choose a category (Java SE, Java EE, Java ME, Ruby, etc).
- Here comes the important part – you save the template as an NBM file. Right-click the module project in the Projects window, and select Create NBM. Look into the Output window to see where the file was saved (for instance FooAppTemplate/build/myorg-fooapptemplate.nbm).
- To install the template into the IDE, go to Tools > Plugins > Downloaded. Click Add Plugin, browse to your NBM file and install it. If you give the NBM file to other developers, that’s how they install the template.
- (Alternatively, right-click the module project in the Project window and select “Install in Development IDE”. This is another way to install it for somebody who has the module project still open.)
- sudo mkdir opt/Qt (notice Q has to be uppercase)
- Download open source Qt run file from official site
- execute .run file
- install at opt/Qt
Have more than 1 versions of qt?
sudo update-alternatives –install /usr/bin/qmake qmake /opt/Qt/ 10
Repeat for each version but with a different number.
To select which version to use as default, run:
sudo update-alternatives –config qmake
Linux can compile C/C++ with Netbeans out of the box, as long as you have the compiler installed (like gcc and g++).
Usually the following commands are enough:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install valgrind
In Windows you have to do this manually:
- From https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/:
- Download mingw
- Install it to the suggested (default) directory. If you want to use a custom directory, make sure the selected path does not contain spaces or other special characters (like greek letters etc)
- From the Mingw Installation manager, click and install at least the following packages:
- Press winkey+pause to load Windows Settings Manager. At Advanced system settings →Advanced→environment variables:
- Add the following text at the end of the PATH environment variable (not user variable):
- At Netbeans→Tools→Plugins:
- check C/C++ feature and activate it
- Create a new C++ project and run it:
- From the “Resolve Missing native tools” just click “Restore defaults”. It should autodetect the settings. If it fails there is a sample configuration at the end of the post.
- Restart Netbeans
- Preferably, logout and login too.
If you have problem configuring Mingw, here is a sample of a handy configuration (mingw at default directory):
