Subject JRE or JDK
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2002 23:44:34 GMT

Hello all. I have installed tomcat on my NT machine, in order to run a
software application that requires it. In the install instructions it talks
about setting the JAVA_HOME variable to the JDK bin folder. However, it
cannot find the necessary files it needs in that location. Instead if I set
the JAVA_HOME variable to my JRE bin folder, it works fine. Is JDK supposed
to be JRE?

Everything is working great with the JRE setup, however I noticed that when
I go to the log on window, tomcat is shut down. After some research I found
that the problem is my JDK, and I need to upgrade it to 1.3.1, which I did.
Now the question is, since my JAVA_HOME is pointing to the JRE, is it really
1.3.1 of JRE I need, not the JDK?

Sorry thats probably confusing, thoughts appreciated.
