Subject RE: Setting system properties for Tomcat as NT service ?
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2003 11:39:55 GMT
No, that's what I would consider the correct way. If you open up the
command prompt and the variable is available, you know it worked. That's
the only advice I am able to give, as I am not very experienced with
Tomcat yet.

Subject: Re: Setting system properties for Tomcat as NT service ?


Hi,

I set it through 'my computer->properties->advanced->environment 
variables' but since it didn't have any effect it probably wasn't the 
right way to go ... or ?

Any hints, anyone ?
