Subject Re: Can't start tomcat within Eclipse.
Date Sat, 09 Aug 2008 16:31:02 GMT

this is a follow up of the problem I am having.
In Ecllipse:
I defined JAVA_HOME in eclipse as
C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_10/lib/tools.jar

Still in Eclipse:
In the Tomcat option -> JVM Settings, I choose JRE1.6.0_07 for JRE, and
C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_10/lib/tools.jar for Classpath

Is there anything wrong with my configuration/setup?
