Subject Re: problems setting up tomcat on debian sarge
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 13:37:49 GMT
I struggled with running tomcat5 on sarge for a while and found that the 
blackdown jvm was the only one that seemed to work properly.

I had great problems using the Sun JVM (there was a thread on here about 
6 weeks ago) whereby tomcat would just stop responding, and refuse to 
shutdown unless i killed the process.

I've not had any problems since switching to blackdown.

If you are going to try tomcat 5.5 then you'll need to remember to 
install the compatibility patch for using a 1.4 jvm.
