Subject TR: Which version of tomcat to use with JBuilder 4.0(Foundation)?
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2001 16:47:37 GMT
Thanks for your help scott, but I was just trying to help somebody else. I
don't have any problem to run Tomcat under Jbuilder. But I think your answer
will really help Qingjian Du.

Thank you for him ! ;-)

Fairly straightforward.

First, install the version of Tomcat that you want to use.  I have tried
and succeeded with 3.0,3.1,3.2,3.2.1,3.3-dev,4.0-dev

Second, make sure that Tomcat runs by itself.  Then shut it down.

Third, in JBuilder under Project | Project Properties:
   a) In the paths tab, under the Required Libraries sub-tab, add the
Tomcat jar files (for Tomcat 4 this is just bootstrap.jar)
   b)Under the run tab, set the main class to the class that the
.sh|.bat files use to run Tomcat (for T4 this is
   c) if necessary set the VM Parameters.  Note that I always set the
Tomcat home property by adding -Dtomcat.home=/path/to/tomcat on the VM
parameters line.  Also, when using Tomcat 4 with the bootstrap class,
you need to add the word start as the single parameter on the
Application Parameters.
   d) Set up your server.xml and your web.xml files properly (I cannot
help you with this ;-)

Then you can compile, run, and even debug your servlets!  Hooray!

PS If you need more help, just ask, as I use JBuilder 4 on both Windows
and Linux with no problems whatsoever.
