Subject InvocationTargetException when starting up Tomcat
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2007 07:36:29 GMT
Hi all,
I am installing Tomcat server on a machine that runs Unix but does not 
have a graphical interface. I have unpacked the zip file 
(jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28.zip) and trying to start the server with the 
script below. The startup always fails with the following message in 
STDERR. Can someone please advise me, what am I missing ?
