Hello there,

I am trying to set up Tomcat on my MacOSX PowerBook....

I created a .bash_profile file under ~/ its contents are:

JAVA_HOME="/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home";
CATALINA_HOME="/Developer/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28";
PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin;
export JAVA_HOME CATALINA_HOME

Now, when I did this:

$ cd $CATALINA_HOME/bin
$ sh startup.sh

I got this error message:

Cannot find ./catalina.sh
This file is needed to run this program

If anyone can help, I'd be very appreciative......

All the best,

Did you check if startup.sh is executable?

chmod +x startup.sh
./startup.sh

Also for setting class path use this tool. It is easy to set classpath with this. http://www.rubicode.com/Software/RCEnvironment/

sh startup.sh


Don't start it up in its own shell (the result of using the sh command). When you do that the spawned process does not have its working directory correctly set.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
