What files are you seeing in Tomcat's bin folder?

By the way, last time I installed Tomcat on my machine it gave me start and stop shortcuts on my desktop. Did you not get those?

I'm also assuming you did grab the binary of Tomcat and not the source.

... is what happening?

If you're running a .exe file, then you must be on Windows, in which case the startup.sh file won't help (it's for Unix). Is there a startup.bat file?

Hi Marc,

Today once again I tried with cool mind. First I uninstall the existing one and then install it again. Now it is working fine. Actually previously I was using tomcat4.1. As I want to use EL so I have to install tomcat6.0.

I was expecting startup.bat with tiger sign in bin like tomcat4. But here I got tomcat6 Service Runner and the sign here is different.

And inside bin folder the files are:

1> bootstrap Executable Jar file
2> tomcat6 Service runner
3> tomcat6w Procurn Service Manager
4> tomact-juli Executable jar file

By the way this time also no shortcut I got for start and stop on desktop.

And Ulf you are right. For windows it is a bat file not sh file.

Thanks Marc and Ulf for youe support.


Thanks,
Satya
