Hi Folks,
I have jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27 and Eclipse 3. I downloaded tomcatPluginV3 and unzipped inside plugin folder in Eclipse. When I want to start Tomcat 5 from Eclipse menu, gives me the following error:



I do have name JDK 1.4.2 in Windows-->Preferences -->Installed JREs that points to JAVA_HOME\JRE

Does anyone have any suggestion? Thanks.

As far as I know, Tomcat needs a full-fledged JDK - a JRE won't suffice.

It works. Thank you sir. I would have waisted so much of my time.
