Have you read this:


I don’t remember version 4 and what –path would do.  You can certainly 
pass along env variables with --JvmOptions –Dpath=...

Subject: Tomcat 5.0.28 windows service path configuration


I need your help to solve a problem, i would like to migrate my app from
Tomcat 4.1.31 to 5.0.28 and use it as Windows Service.
I would like to pass a directory Path during Tomcat 5.0.28 windows service

I can do it easily with Tomcat 4.1.31 when i use this command in a batch
file :

tomcat.exe -install "Skyview Server" ... -path

But I can't do it with Tomcat 5.0.28 when i use this command :

service.bat  install Skyview ... --path

I tried lots of workarounds to pass a path to Tomcat 5.0.28 during  windows
service installation, is there a way to configure Tomcat in this mode ?
I would like to avoid update windows environment path in environment
variable and i would prefer to use a Tomcat service for it.

Thanks very much for your help
