I have little bit confusion regarding apache tomcat installation.

So, I would like to know that whats the difference between the .zip and the .exe tomcat ?

Thanks in advance...

Accepted Answer

The exe will install Tomcat as a Windows Service. The zip file will allow you to start and stop Tomcat using batch files or to manually install the service. If you want to integrate Tomcat with an IDE, you need the zip file, since the required batch files aren't included in the exe version.
