Subject RE: Problems Running tomcat as a service
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2001 17:45:26 GMT
Hey everyone:

I solved the problem I was facing. real sorry to be so much trouble. The
problem was with the file as expected.

There is an instance of parser.jar and jaxp.jar in the file which i happened
to remove from the lib directory and replace them with xalan.jar and
xerces.jar. I replaced the same in the file and bingo! it starts working....

Thanks again

Subject: RE: Problems Running tomcat as a service

Just to add.....I am running IIS 5.0 and jdk 1.3.1...the problem is
frustrating....and it has been persisting for quite some time now....please
help with this.


Hello all:

I am trying to get tomcat to run as a service on a win2k box but am having

I follow the manual for installing the service and create a service

jk_nt_service -i Jakarta c:\jakarta-tomcat\conf\
I get the response:

Asked (and given) winsock 1.1
The service named Jakarta was created. Now adding registry entries
Registry values were added
If you have already updated you may start the Jakarta
service by exec
uting "net start Jakarta" from the command prompt

but when I do a net start Jakarta I get the following:

The Jakarta service is starting.
The Jakarta service could not be started.

The service did not report an error.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.

C:\jakarta-tomcat\conf>net helpmsg 3534

The service did not report an error.


The service did not report an error.


Try the task later. If the problem persists, contact your network

Why is this happening? I tried starting the service from the services applet
too but it gives the same error.

I know a lot of you must have answered this kinda question before....can you
please do it again?

Thanks a bunch
