Hello
Ive just bought the SCWCD Study Kit by Manning. It comes with tomcat 4.0.1 but im running windows xp and can even run the setup.exe file that comes with the cd. So i have tomat 4.1.27 setup now, but theres a lot more you have to do to get a servlet up and running, like you have to add a context to the server.xml file in the conf directory.
Anyways... can anyone tell me if im gonna have any problems running the examples on the accompanying cd with my version of tomcat. Has anyone experienced the same setup problem???
Dave

hi David,
In spite of having a jdk(of a higher verison than 1.2) installed on my Windows 2000 Proffessional System, if i go in to install Tomcat from the CD, it tells me that it was unable to find any JDK's installed, and that i have to install jdk...
Looking around for a workaround...
regrds,
pvs

Hi David Swan,
If you follow the steps provided by the Appendix-A of the book, it's pretty easy... U need to know your JDK path, your Tomcat Installation Directory and the location of servlet.jar... That's it...
Hope you won't find any problem with the installation....
