I've just installed Tomcat on Win98 and had a couple of problems before getting
it to work:-

To see the error message use the command :-
     tomcat run
This will run tomcat in the same console window.
Messages are also saved to the log files in the logs directory.

For me, Tomcat would not work under JDK1.22, I had to upgrade to JDK1.3. I
believe this is true for Win98 although I have see nothing in the archives.

Let me know if you get further problems and I'll try to help.

Subject:  Win98 installation problems

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:

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,
