Subject Win98 installation problems
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2000 09:38:17 GMT
Hello everybody!

I want to learn JSP so I started with jGuru's course; downloaded the Tomcat 3.1 binary, unzipped
it, followed the install procedures from the course, but the Tomcat doesn't seem to work.
What I get when I try to run startup is:
Starting tomcat in new window
Using classpath: C:\Progra~1\jdk1.2.2\jakarta-tomcat\classes;C:\Progra~1\jdk1.2.2\jakarta-tomcat\lib\webserver.jar;C:\Progra~1\jdk1.2.2\jakarta-tomcat\lib\jasper.jar;C:\Progra~1\jdk1.2.2\jakarta-tomcat\lib\xml.jar;C:\Progra~1\jdk1.2.2\jakarta-tomcat\lib\servlet.jar;c:\progra~1\jdk1.2.2\lib\tools.jar
After this it does open a new window with a message in it, but I can't read it, as it immediately
shuts it.
Reading the .BAT files, I guessed that it stops at the following
start java %TOMCAT_OPTS% -Dtomcat.home="%TOMCAT_HOME%" org.apache.tomcat.startup.Tomcat %2
%3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
The JAVA_HOME and TOMCAT_HOME variables are:

I have a Win98SE machine, with JDK 1.2.2 .
I would really appreciate any help or hint, as I'm quite confused.
Thanks in advance,
