Subject Proposal: RUNNING.TXT classpath update
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2003 21:43:57 GMT

It seems many people are frustrated because Tomcat doesn't work right
away, which is mainly because of faulty classpath settings, a lack in
the setup documentation.

I'd suggest someone add to the RUNNING.TXT doc at the end of the
part "(1) Download and Install the Tomcat 4.0 Binary Distribution",
a couple of helpful lines like

------------------------------------------

* Configure your classpath:

  Update your environment variable CLASSPATH to contain at least
  the following entries (of course, adapted to your operating
  system and paths):

  .;
  E:\java\j2sdk14\lib;
  F:\Servlet\Jakarta\server\lib;
  F:\Servlet\Jakarta\lib;
  F:\servlet\jakarta\common\lib\servlet.jar;
  E:\java\j2sdk14\lib\tools.jar;
  F:\servlet\jakarta\lib\jasper-runtime.jar;

  Especially check that servlet.jar, tools.jar, and
  jasper-runtime.jar path names are specified correctly.
  Without these, Tomcat can not start.

-------------------------------------------

(I'd do this myself if i had ever used CVS, but... ;)

cheers,
 - Jan
