Subject What causes this kind of error...
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2002 12:05:15 GMT

I'm using jdk 1.4.1 tomcat 4.1.12 win2000 server.

If I use the command line "catalina run" to startup tomcat It works perfectly, but when I
start tomcat as a service, I get this error and tomcat does not get started : 

Bootstrap: Create Catalina server java.lang.NullPointerException
