Subject Re: Newbie : Help integrating Tomcat with PWS on NT
Date Tue, 01 May 2001 22:33:11 GMT
Hi Keith

Here is a previous post on the subject. It seems most errors with this occur
because of incorrect registry settings. Attached is also a registry example
pic previously posted (the person had problems so this may be wrong) that
you can use as an example.
 <<Registry.jpg>> 

As for the web server you choose, that decision should be based on many
factors e.g. company policy, client needs, requirements etc. So if PWS fits
your purpose then it should be fine to use.
