Even if you have already a Tomcat in your network, used by SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform, you may need to install an independed Tomcat for different reasons:

  • The JAVA requirements for these applications are different.
  • You may need to restart Tomcat at different times affecting different groups of users.
  • Performance: if you are importing a large set of data, this may impact your BI Platform users.

Tomcat requires Java SE to run. Depending on the version of Tomcat you are using, you may require a different Java SE version. As an example, we can see that Apache Tomcat 8.5.16 requires Java SE 7 or later:


A safe option is to download the latest Java version available:


Installing Tomcat

By default, Tomcat will listen in port 8080. If you have already another Tomcat running (BI Plaform for example), an easy change is to use port 9080. You can also change the other ports to start with 9 to avoid any possible port conflict:


Once you have correctly installed and started tomcat, you can install SAP Analytics Cloud Agent following the documentation.
