Tomcat 4.1 is working fine.  I am running my web apps from Tomcat 4.1 without any problem.
 What am I doing wrong?  Please help me.  I need to change to newer version due to performance
issue.  I will appreciate any help.

Hi Kiran!

Try to install your Tomcat as an operating system service by using 
service.bat. This script sets the parameter java.endorsed.dirs. Having 
Tomcat as service is more convenient as it can be started automatically 
after booting, you don't have an extra DOS box and so on.

Kind regards,
