hardcoded registry value for vm lets tomcat service on win2k fail

           Summary: hardcoded registry value for vm lets tomcat service on
                    win2k fail
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.1.10
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: MacOS 9
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: lh@tpso.com


Hi,

the registry entry HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Apache Tomcat 4.1
\Parameters\JVM Library hardcodes the path to the VM. When one changes the 
installed JDK/JRE (and thus usually has a new JAVA_HOME dir), the service won't 
start anymore.
As the flexibility gained by once defining JAVA_HOME as an environment variable 
is so nice, i would suggest not to hardcode this parameter and instead use the 
environment variable value. the documentation should be upgraded as well to 
inform win2k/xp-users they shall define JAVA_HOME as system, not user variable.
