I am using Winows XP. And the JDK1.3 and Tomcat 5.5.9.
I had created the bat file for the enviornment variables(path,classpath,java_home).
When I had started the tomcat server in the ms-dos

One screen appears and disappers immediately. Nothing is displayed. I also tried to increase the buffer size. I tried to right click the startup.bat file to increase the memory. In properties tab, I could found the memory tab.

In the MS-DOS screen, I right clicked and in the properties tab, I found:
Option: >> Comman History >> Buffer Size: 50 (I have increased to 999)
Layout: Screen Buffer Size >> Width: 80(I have increased this to 1000) Height :300

Then also it's not working. Please suggest how to resolve it
Author and all-around good cowpoke

I see you are using JDK 1.3 - that is a rather old library - do the Tomcat docs say that it is compatible with that old version?
Undoubtedly there is important information in the window that vanishes.
In order to keep all the output in one window, you need to change the last executable line in startup.bat which presently looks like:


This will continue in the same command prompt window rather than creating a new one.
