hi ,

Ive installed tomcat 5 on my PC at my workplace,my server is not getting started why because it is telling that JAVA_HOME is pointing to jre instead of jdk..
while typing cataline start in the command prompt iam getting....

cannot find the file-Djava.endorsed.dirs=' make sure that path and file name are correct and all libraries are available....


we have already installed interwoven teamsite(content management system tool) which by default has tomcat4.1.I think it works on unix.


could anyone please help me in this regard,

Regds,

Hi Sangeetha,

Plz ensure ur JAVA_HOME is set properly.Say u've installed JDK1.4 on D drive.Then JAVA_HOME must be set to D:/JDK1.4 as an environment variable.(JAVA_HOME=D:/JDK1.4).U dont bother abt the rest of the errors once u set this they'll get cleared automatically.

Regards,
Priya.

CATALINA_HOME should also be defined as environment variable.
(For example CATALINA_HOME=E:\Tomcat 5.0)

Priya.
