Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52049] New: Incorrect setup instructions
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 13:55:18 GMT

             Bug #: 52049
           Summary: Incorrect setup instructions
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
    Classification: Unclassified


in chapter 2 setup of the documentation of at least Tomcat 6 and Tomcat 7 for
the windows installation the following item is mentioned:

"Java location: The installer will use the registry or the JAVA_HOME
environment variable to determine the base path of a J2SE 5 JRE."

I think that JAVA_HOME should/must be replaced by JRE_HOME. If the variable
JAVA_HOME is exported Tomcat seems to expect a valid base path of a J2SE 5 JDK
(or J2SE 6 JDK for Tomcat 7). 

I would like to ask for an update of the corresponding manual pages. Thanks in
