Subject Re: Tomcat install on Cobalt.
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2001 18:50:45 GMT

I've never installed tomcat on a cobalt server, but I'll take a crack at
your question.  You need to have the JAVA_HOME environment variable pointed
to the place you installed the jdk.  So if your jdk is in
/usr/local/jdk1.3, then your JAVA_HOME variable would equal
/usr/local/jdk1.3.  And the part about the path is just saying make sure
that the interpreter is in your path.  If you can go to a command prompt
and type java -version, or something like that, you should be fine.

A nice tutorial can be found at:
