Subject Re: Tomcat4, where is classpath set when run as service
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 15:22:51 GMT
FYI,
i placed jar files in tomcat_home/shared/lib as per doc you cite below.
This seemed to be effective, because i stopped getting the "package does not
exist" error, and now get that generic "status 500 error - null pointer
exception" - which i intrepret to mean that there is an internal error with
the code i have written.

thanks all,
-paul lomack
