        I am new to Tomcat.
        The startup script never work. With the JustGo, I got this Jstart.log.
        This exe is F:\Tomcat3.1\jakarta-tomcat\bin\Jstart.exe
        Finding TOMCAT_HOME via current location
        TOMCAT_HOME = F:\Tomcat3.1\jakarta-tomcat
        TOMCAT_LIB  = F:\Tomcat3.1\jakarta-tomcat\lib
        JAVA_HOME = D:\jdk1.2
        JAVA_EXE  = D:\jdk1.2\bin\java.exe
        Executable : 
        Command line arguments (in order appended) : 
        Environment Vars : 
        Which seem to indicate everything is working. In fact if I pause the screen, I see
        java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org/apache/tomcat/service/http/HttpConnectionHandler

        So I am back to square one.
        I have check the classpath and the class HttpConnectionHandler is in one of the .jar.
        cd F:\Tomcat3.1\jakarta-tomcat\lib
        jar tvf webserver.jar

            A couple of suggestions (I assume you are using a Win platform as you are mentioning
bat files...):
            a) install tomcat in a path with no spaces  (i.e. do not use Program files). Rename
the jakarta-tomcat directory to tomcat. I suggest you install it at the root level (d:\tomcat)
            b) configure your environment space. There are several ways to do this - one is
adding a line with CommandEnvSize=4096  to the NonWindowsApp section of your system.ini.
            c) be sure that you are setting TOMCAT_HOME and JAVA_HOME properly (usually in
your \autoexec.bat). Also configure your classpath,if you need one.
            d) there is a very nice tool JustGo that you can use if you definitely are not
able to start Tomcat. see
            Many issues related to configure and run Tomcat have been posted in this mailing
list. I would also suggest you spend some time looking in the archives of this and other mailing
list, the documentation, etc.

                      Have used TOMCAT at all?   I'm trying to configure the system and according
to their documentation all I need to 
                do is run the BAT file called TOMCAT with a parameter of RUN or START.  It
end up blowing up on a CLASSDEFNOTFOUND 
                error.  After looking at the BAT file, I see that its trying to lauch a JAVA
program "org.apache.tomcat.startup.Tomcat ".

                The install didn't even create a "org.apache.tomcat.startup.Tomcat" directory
or file.  I do have a "",

                but this source only.  It doesn't make any mention abount having to build
the system.  Any thoughts?  Did I down load the wrong thing?

                Thanks Tom Carroll
