Subject Re: Tomcat on MacOS problem

Check also that the .jar files have untared as binary files, not 
text. If you use stuffit expander to untar, then you need to tell it 
to handle .jar files as binary... I had this problem. Although I got 
around it by using the program suntar, which works a treat, before 
someone suggested adding the .jar - binary setting to stuffit.

A way to check that the .jar file is sane, is to open it in Zipit, 
and check the validity of some of the class files within. I found 
that in particular my whole xerces.jar file was bad, and fixed it by 
untar'ing again with suntar.
