Subject Re: How to Build Tomcat 4.1.x or 5.0.x on Windows?
Date Sun, 16 Oct 2005 09:40:33 GMT
Why are you building Tomcat from the source? (OK, I understand there are 
a multitude of reasons why someone might want to do this....) But if 
your intention is simply to run a Tomcat application, then why not 
download & install the binaries? - installable Windows binaries seem to 
be available for 5.0.28; 5.0.30-beta; 5.5.12; and 4.1.31.
