I am having trouble getting tomcat to run on NT. I have read some earlier posts on upping the amount of memory for DOS to run the tomcat batch files, but I am not sure if this is the same problem. After installing tomcat and setting all the variables, I go to the jakart-tomcat\bin directory and type:
tomcat start (or tomcat run)
and I get a bunch of exceptions in thread main, can't find bundle for base name ...
my variables are
JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk1.3
J2EE_HOME = c:\j2sdkee1.2.1
CLASSPATH = c:\jdk1.3\lib\tools.jar;c:\j2sdkee1.2.1\lib\j2ee.jar
TOMCAT_HOME = e:\program files\apache group\jakart-tomcat
What am I missing? Thank you for the help

Brian,
I do not exactly about NT but i think U have to type startup (because of the startup.bat) in the bin library to get the server started.
Just my $0.02 .
Thanks
Ajay

If I type startup, it says that it is not a recognizable command, program or batch file. That is why I ended up using tomcat start. I'm not sure why startup would not work.

Brian,
I did some digging for U. Here is a link which may be of some help to U. Or else I think someone else will surely help out. I hope U downloaded the *****.zip file from the binary downloads at the tomcat home page.

I looked to see if I had installed it as an NT service, and I didn't see aything like that link was talking about. I don't even remember the install asking that question. So then like you recommended I made sure that I had the correct file, and it looks like I did get the correct .zip file. When in doubt, re install I guess. Any more suggestions?
Thank you for the help

Works most of the time for WINDOWS.

I seem to recall hearing that Tomcat doesn't like spaces in directory paths. Move it out of that highly annoying program files directory.
Mine runs fine on NT once I got the JAVA_HOME and TOMCAT_HOME environment parameters set right and cleared out old copies of the JSDK.jar

Thanks, I'll try that- but I won't be back to work until Monday. Until then, I got it to install perfectly on my Windows 98 machine at home :-)
