I have searched all the forumns, and I can not find any solution to this. I have copied the code by hand and checked it repeatedly from Head First Servlets & JSP. Below is the code from page 30 of the book. Thanks in advance for your help.

using tomcat 5.5

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\

Hello Ulf Dittmer,

Which port should I change it to? I tried port 9090 but that did not work.

I wanted to add that I downloaded and ran the following executable to install Tomcat apache-tomcat-5.5.23.exe for Windows XP. I believe this is valid.

V ray mentioned running the following on the command line, :C:\Apache\apache-tomcat-5.5.23\bin
and then type : startup"

Can I use the tomcat version that I have or do I need to download a different version? Thank You-

I am using Windows Professional, and I have IIS installed. I am reading the book titled Head First Servlets and JSP.

I downloaded the jdk and set the class path and I download jakarta tomcat and set the class path as the book describes.

I then restarted the computer. After starting the tomcat server I tried both http://localhost:8080/ and and neither page works.

I read through different sites and some mention turning off IIS and setting up Apache as the web server. Other sites describe setting up IIS to work with Tomcat. I am not sure if I need to do either as the Head First Servlets and JSP book does not detail this step. I would appreciate some advice on which path to choose (intalling apache to work with tomcat or setting up iis to work with tomcat) and details on how to set up tomcat.

Thanks, Frank-
