We have tomcat 6 installed on RHEL 5.3.
Tomcat 6 when shutting down display an error message
(/etc/init.d/tomcat stop or shutdown.sh catalina.sh stop)Adding /opt/tomcat6/bin/tomcat-juli.jar to the CLASSPATH var in catalina.sh just before the Java process is started doesn't yield a better result.
I don't know if openjdk is a complete enough implementation of Java to safely run Tomcat. You'd be better off using the Sun or IBM JDK's.
A lot of progress has been made on providing a true open-source JDK implementation, but last I heard, the one that's bundled with most Linux implementations wasn't enterprise-ready. I've never actually put a recent RHEL's bundling to the test, though.
And no, putting the juli.jar in the JDK library should not be an acceptable solution. Besides, if you're installing the RHEL J2EE packages, they're supposed to have set up everything correctly.
Science is the process of replacing what we "know" with what is TRUE. Politics, alas, often prefers to be the opposite.
