Hi
Tomcat Run as a Windows service in background (old version does open a window)
and just show an indicator in systm try.
goto : Tomcat_home/bin/tomcat5w.exe is the service starter and does not open any window.
Tomcat_home/bin/tomcat5.exe open that does window which let you see all out messages.
can u tell me which version of tomcat u use ? 5.0 or 5.5.x ?
because all new version has the service starter within the installer.

Hope it helps .

HI,

Thank you for replying. I am using 5.0.19. Tomcat.exe and tomcatw.exe do not appear to do anything accept a very quick flash on the screen. I never used an installer. I downloaded this file, "jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19.zip" and set the environment. I just do not like the fact that the window remains open.

Thanks again for your help.

Kind regards,

John

If you are getting just a quick flash and Tomcat does not start, probably something is wrong with an environment variable.
In general, to get Java programs to run without a command window showing, you execute with javaw instead of java.
If you are starting Tomcat with startup.bat or catalina.bat, it looks like you should be able to start without a window by replacing the uses of the environment variable _RUNJAVA with _RUNJAVAW everywhere it appears. See the batch file setclasspath.bat in /bin directory for where this environment variable gets set.
