Subject Re: Anyone using javaservice with tomcat?
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2001 21:38:30 GMT
I'm not sure what the problem could be... When i was trying to first set up
Tomcat 4, it would beep as well after a few seconds, but that's because i
didn't try using the installtomcat4.bat file but used my own.

I did play with 323, but due to some constraints and differences with
JavaWebServer, i decided to up to 4.  So i didn't really get to work with
323 much, so i don't know what the problem could be.

I could suggest a few things.
1. Upgrade your JDK to 1.31_01.
2. Upgrade tomcat to 4.  (But there are some configuration and changes
required with servlets, and locations of servlets.  I can try and help in
that case.)

Sorry I can't help any further, but I tried. :)
