You need to set TOMCAT and JAVA Home for each window. When you open new window to run Tomact it wont recognise the other values you set in other window. You can put this values in enviroment vairables or copy this settings in .bat file and run each time when you open DOS prompt.

Hope it will helpful to you.

Im not an expert.i had seen this problem in win98 system to avoid you had to select the properties of startup.bat file and increase the memory to the maximum.Hope it will help you.

Hi nana !

i try this but nothing happened

start->run->sysedit
PATH=%PATH%;.;C:\jdk1.3.1\bin
set classpath=C:\jdk1.3.1\lib\tools.jar;.;c:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3\lib\servlet.jar
set TOMCAT_HOME=C:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3
set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.1


Use the graphical workbench to sent your environment variables instead, using right mouse button and "properties" settings.
You should define "JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.1" and "JAKARTA_HOME=C:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3" as system environment variables, I insist, not as USER environment variables but as SYSTEM environment variables. You shouldn't have to reboot your machine, but close command line interfaces if you tried to launch Tomcat this way, and open new ones so that environment variables are taken into account.

Best regards.

I believe it is supposed to be CATALINA_HOME. I am moving this to the Tomcat forum since, well, this is about Tomcat and not Servlets.

Out of environment space messages indicate you are stuck with Win98 or ME - systems that do not provide enough memory for the extensive environment variable manipulation that Tomcat startup uses.
I found this discussion via google.
This problem has been discussed MANY times in this and other forums.
