Subject Re: Can't find JAVA_HOME
Date Sun, 12 Jan 2003 21:18:05 GMT
I concur with Paul's observation below... please check to see if the 
tomcat is running as a different user and if so either adjust the 
user's login shell (.profile (bourne) or .cshrc (c-shell)) and add the 
appropriate java binary

also do the following when tomcat attempts to run

/bin/ps -ef | grep java (assuming your on solaris)

check to see the /path/to/the/java binary that is being used and set 
your java_home to that... 

also you can add additional debugging statements to the startup 
scripts... for example edit /path/to/tomcat/bin/ and add a 
var to echo out $JAVA_HOME to see what its trying to set it to.

Good luck
