SubCategory: New Bug Report
Class: suggest
State: closed

exception thrown at DefaultServlet


This only applies if you are DIRECTLY accessing tomcat pages (ie, on port 8080).  Test that
you are only accessing tomcat by shutting down your web server before diagnosing this problem.

If you have the JSDK 1.2.2 installed on Windows NT, you only have the SDK installed, not a
seperate JRE component (you can see this under Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs).
But if you are using JSDK 1.3, installing this package will install both the SDK and a seperate
JRE.  Some users may remove this component inadvertently, thus resulting in tomcat
occasionally starting successfully, but all attempts to access tomcat directly will result
in an exception thrown at DefaultServlet.  If you either install jsdk 1.2.2 or reinstall jsdk
1.3, the runtime environment is reinstalled, 
and the error disappears.

On some occasions, the error
"could not find Java 2 Runtime environment" will appear, indicating that the runtime environment
is missing, but this error does not appear on every occasion.
