I think there must be some application(may be some other server ) running on(precisely listening) on port 8080.So u can do two things
1)either shutdown that server/application(throgh task manager) or
2)goto Tomcat 5.5\conf\server.xml and change the default port(8080) to some other port.Look for this into server.xml

Try to change the Connector port number in server.xml and restart Tomcat

Hi Santosh,

There are no logs files in tomcat5.0\logs folder. Also there are no exceptions. I have set the CATALINA_HOME to the tomcat5.0 folder. The tomcat window is appearing for a moment but vanishing immediately.

Jyothi, when I've used the more recent (5.x) versions of Tomcat I think I've used the Service Manager that comes with it, which appears as an icon in your Windows toolbar (bottom-right of screen). Have you tried that?

I think the problem is your tomcat doesnot support the jdk which you are running. Try to check the compatiable jdk for your version of tomcat 5.

Hi,
To see the exception run tomact by using catalina script as-
Run cammand 'catalina run' from bin directory so that the tomcat run in same window where you type the command and you can see the exception.

Hope this help you,
From,

Hi,

You may not have set JAVA_HOME. Before installing tomcat5, u have to set JAVA_HOME in environmrnt variables. SO better way u uninstall tomcat5 & first set JAVA_HOME & then install Tomcat5. After completion of installation u set CATALINA_HOME to ur tomcat5 directory.

Did u try installing JDK1.5 and running TOMCAT5.0 in that ??
i think this will solve all u r problems ..

Tomcat5 specifically needs JAVA5 to work with ..

I don't think so. I only have Java 1.4.2, but my Tomcat 5 is working well. And I don't have CATALINA_HOME in my environment variables.

I am not sure Yosi Hendarsjah why u r tomcat is working properly..

I have Tomcat 5 running on my machine at work, and I use J2SDK 1.4.2 to run it. There's a compatibility pack that I had to install to allow Tomcat 5.x to run using the Java 1.4. Check the Tomcat 5.x site and installation guide for more details on this.

Try that and see if it works.

I've created a JSP file that contains:

In the browser it displays:
JVM Version 1.4.2_06-b03

BTW, should this thread be moved to Products>>Tomcat/Apache forum?

Hi ,

Thank you , thank you everybody. My tomcat5.0 is up and running fine. As Narendran Nair said, I have removed jdk1.4 and installed jdk1.5 . and set the CATALINA_HOME and JAVA_HOME paths. So i think tomcat5.0 needs jdk1.5.

Regards,
Jyothi

hello Yosi Hendarsjah,

Michael Valentino
I have Tomcat 5 running on my machine at work, and I use J2SDK 1.4.2 to run it. There's a compatibility pack that I had to install to allow Tomcat 5.x to run using the Java 1.4. Check the Tomcat 5.x site and installation guide for more details on this.


i think Michael made a point here .. you need to get the compatibility pack.. look like you have that thing in your system. that is why your Tomcat is working properly.. any way .. Tomcat is there, so that we can test our servlets .. jsp's .. jsf etc ... if its working . carry on with it man...

have a good day ..
