Subject Re: Tomcat 5.0.28 fails to start
Date Sat, 06 Nov 2004 21:53:50 GMT
The problem is that Tomcat isn't finding the classes in 
$CATALINA_HOME/bin/jmx.jar.  Either this jar got corrupted somehow, or your 
JVM isn't honoring the classpath in the manifest.  If the jar is there and 
looks ok, then try adding it to the classpath in the startup script.
