The messages show you are running IIS as the webserver and it is
redirecting the servlets to tomcat.  When you shutdown tomcat, IIS can
no longer redirect the servlets to tomcat and therefor you get an error.
I have never set Tomcat as a stand alone server, but it can be done.

Subject: IIS and Tomcat


I am just trying to get my servlets tested on IIS (windows 2000) and
I have done all the set-up steps, the isapi_redirect stuff seems to be
functioning. I have IIS on W2K with Tomcat 3.2.2 and JDK 1.3.0_02. IIS
is on
the usual port 80.

If I start up "tomcat run", tomcat starts and initialises everything
(IIS is
also running at this time)


I can see that its coming from Tomcat.

If I hit


This also works and it tells me that the port is 80 and the server is
Tomcat. However, I know that the port 80 is being served by IIS and I
see the request in the IIS logs, being redirected to
/jakarta/isapi_redirect.dll. Why is it telling me that the web server is
Tomcat ?

So it all looks good, except that if I do a "tomcat stop", then the
requests to IIS start to fail. Is this expected ? If so, can I run
without opening up that 8080 port ? Maybe I'm a bit confused  but I'd
to have tomcat managing my servlets without essentially having a second
server running.

Secondly, how do I get a jar loaded and get access to the classes within
that jar ? Where do I put it and how can classes in it be aliased ?

Thirdly, and probably related, how can I use the <servlet> tag in my
web pages. I was using Apache JSSI previously.

Thanks very much
