Subject RE: Install on XP Home edition
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 13:27:08 GMT

This is where I believe my mistake is.  I installed Java on my home
computer in response and now I'm working on getting the JAVA_HOME
variable set.  I thought I created the correct JAVA_HOME environment
variable but I found out I was creating it in the top "user" box and not
in the bottom "system" box.  The "system" box is where my JAVA_HOME
environment variable resides on my work computer which has the server
installed correctly.  

I'm also trying to determine if my PATH environment variable needs to
include the path of my JDK directory.  On my work computer the JDK
directory is not indicated.  However I have gotten instruction that this
PATH variable needs to be set.  So it seems to work without it but I'm
no expert.  This might be the cause of another problem I'm trying to get
around.  If you know for certain that this needs to be added to the PATH
variable could someone confirm that it is the "system" PATH variable
that I need to add the directory to.

Seems like JAVA_HOME has not been defined or wrong java version.
check tomcat/logs/catalina.out
