Subject Re: Tomcat startup under NT
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2001 21:40:04 GMT

Open up a DOS command window and cd into TOMCAT_HOME/bin. Then issue the 

tomcat run

This will run tomcat in the same window and you can see the problem. When 
you use the startup.bat script, it issues the command:

tomcat start

which runs Tomcat in a different window.
