I'm getting this message when I shutdown tomcat at the command line:
S:\Sun\jwsdp-1.3\bin>shutdown
Error: java.io.IOException: The directory or file cannot be created
It was working fine when I shut tomcat down an hour ago. I changed a servlet I am working on and restarted tomcat. Now when I try to shutdown I get the above error. Also, windows crashed (*sigh*) while tomcat was running and it didn't shutdown correctly. Could this have something to do with it? Thanks for any help. Couldn't find a prob similar to this anywhere, kind of desperate, on the verge of re-installing tomcat .

Isn't there any more to that stack trace?
Before reinstalling Tomcat, I would try removing the web application that you changed - just move the directory out of webapps - and see if you can run the Tomcat examples. I can't think of any reason for an abnormal termination to cause this continuing problem.
Is it writing the normal log files?

Thanks for the reply.
That's all there is to the stack trace.
I removed the app (which was working) and I still have the same problem. Every application I have in the webapps directory works. Tomcat seems to be running fine and there is nothing to indicate otherwise in the logs. Only thing I can't do is stop tomcat! I can deploy, redeploy, start, stop etc applications with no problem. It's as if tomcat decided it was not going to turn off anymore.
