Subject How can I install Tomcat 4.0 as a plug-in of IIS 5.1?
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2002 09:39:52 GMT


My name is Luca Ventura and I am an italian student.
I have Microsoft IIS Web Server (5.1) on a PC with Win XP Professional
installed and JDK 1.4. I would like
to install Apache Tomcat 4.0 as a plug-in to support JSP and Servlets but
until now all my tries have been unsuccessful.

I have downloaded Tomcat 4.0 at URL:

I have downloaded the two versions of Tomacat:

jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-LE-jdk14.exe (for JDK 1.4)
jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3.exe (for JDK 1.2+, it also contains other J2EE

Then I have followed the instructions for installing Tomcat 4 as a plug-in
of ISS present at URL:

and at URL:

The problem is that when I start Tomcat and IIS and I try to access to a JSP
page I obtain the error showed by picture "error_tomcat.jpg", that I

"tomcat-util.jar" present in <dir_inst_tomcat4>\server\lib but it seems that

class "BaseRequest"), but I don't know why. What must I do? Is there some
configuration file in Tomcat where must I set the .jar files to use? Or must
I insert them in the environment variable CLASSPATH?

Then I want to point out that I want to configure Tomcat not as an NT
service but I want to start it when I need accessing to "start menu" of

I tried to use the isapi filter "isapi_redirector.dll" I found at:

instead of "isapi_redirect.dll" present in "" (you can download
it at url: ),
but the result is the same.

What can I do? Is there some can suggest to me some link I can use to
configure IIS and Tomcat 4 correctly? I have seen that in Jakarta web site
there are instructions to set Tomcat 3 with IIS but Tomcat 4 is very

I pray you to tell me how to set all environments and configuration files of
Tomcat too :)

Thanks a lot in advance.
