Your classpath statements look good. The only thing that I can advise at
this point is to doublecheck your JAVA_HOME value, and ensure
that it's pointing to the right place. I have sometimes seen cases where
JAVA_HOME was pointing to the JRE, but the JAR file was in the JDK's
Java lib directory. I have also seen the opposite case.
If that's not it, then I'm out of ideas.

  Thanks for the response all -

  Here is my tomcat.bat file:


  rem Set up the CLASSPATH that we need

  set cp=%CLASSPATH%

  set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\webserver.jar
  set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\jasper.jar
  set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\servlet.jar
  set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar
  echo setclasspath for tools.jar

  echo Starting tomcat in new window
  echo Using classpath: %CLASSPATH%
  start java %TOMCAT_OPTS% -Dtomcat.home="%TOMCAT_HOME%"
org.apache.tomcat.startup.Tomcat %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
  goto cleanup

  It looks to me like it is setting the class path to tools.jar. When Tomcat
starts I also tools.jar listed in the class path. Any ideas what I'm still
doing wrong.
