SQLite3 is a simple and small relational database management system that works on a single file as a database. Very usefull for mini projects and hugely popular with apps on Android and other embedded systems.
I will be outlining steps here required to setup SQLite3 with Java and Tomcat on Ubuntu Linux machine.
Most modern linux distributions will have SQLite3 in its repositories. For Ubuntu or Debian based systems try the command below.
sqlitebrowser is a GUI client for SQLite.
Next ensure you have tomcat and java installed. If not run the below command. I have chosen Tomcat7 and OpenJDK7 here.
<role rolename="manager-gui"/> <role rolename="manager-script"/> <user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager-gui,manager-script"/>
If you had to make the above changes restart tomcat service.
Just for FYI, here are the tomcat files and folders for reference
/var/lib/tomcat # under conf contains config files like tomcat-users.xml, server.xml to change port from 8080 to anything else. Also contains the webapps folder where the applications are installed.
/usr/share/tomca7 #Contains the binaries and libraries of tomcat
/var/log/tomcat7 # Contains tomcat log files for debugging
