Hello friends,
I am using Tomcat 5.5. Can you tell me that what should be in the classpath?
This is my present classpath.

"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\commons-el.ja
r";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\jasper-run
time.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\nam
ing-factory-dbcp.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\co
mmon\lib\jasper-compiler.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomca
t 5.5\common\lib\jsp-api.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomca
t 5.5\common\lib\naming-resources.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundat
ion\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\jasper-compiler-jdt.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Soft
ware Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\naming-factory.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apac
he Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\servlet-api.jar";

Should any change needs to be done here?

Do you mean how to run the tomcat ?
If your trying to run the tomcat just open command prompt eg: C:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-5.5.23\bin>startup.bat

Hi,thanks for replying.
My question is
can i put
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\*jar

in the classpath without mentioning all the jar files seperately?

Two points:

1) Tomcat does not use the classpath environment variable, so in order to run Tomcat you don't need (and should not) put all its jar files into the classpath.

2) You can't have something like "*.jar" in the classpath. All jar files need to be explicitly mentioned.
