I have downloaded, installed in Windows2000 Advanced Server from binaries: HTTP apache Server (from apache_1.3.22-win32-x86.exe) jakarta-tomcat (from jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1.exe) set TOMCAT environment variable. It all worked I saw and played with examples of servlets and jsp. But during installation jakarta-tomcat determined and installed JDK1.3 and JRE to directory which I did not use (installed by installation of JBuilder 5, Personal Edition while for using J2EE I needed JBuilder4 Enterprise Edition). I uninstalled and deleted all: Tomcat Apache JBuilder5 restarted PC reinstalled Apache. BUT... trying to reinstall Tomcat, the Tomcat installation gives a message "Using Java Development Kit version 1.3 found in d:\JBuilder5\jdk1.3 Using Java Runtime Environment version 1.3 found in d:\JBuilder5\jdk1.3\jre\bin\classic\jvm.dll" How does it come that Tomcat installation determines JDK in uninstalled, deleted, non-existent directories (while there is equivalent D:\JBuilder4\jdk1.3"???
Perhaps you have JAVA_HOME environment variable set? This is not related, but you should have CATALINA_HOME set rather than TOMCAT_HOME.

No, JDK in Windows2K do not use any JAVA_HOME environment at all (I was using JDK for a year and do not have env vars set at all): 1)vars are used from registry. For ex., in 2)I have JDK in various palaces at my PC used by JBuilder4, JBuilder5, etc, and it is set-up by (installations of) those applications 3)Env vars are not set by the command set... what is different to prev Windows...!!! What happened is that, using JBulder4 EE, I experimented to install JBuilder5. When I uninstalled it, Windows registry continued having the uninstalled/eliminated dirs, in My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.3.0 (JavaHome=old_dir; , RunTime Lib = ****) My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.3 (JavaHome=old_dir) My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.3.0 (JavaHome=old_dir) My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\1.3.0 (JavaHome=old_dir, RunTime Lib = ****) My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\1.3.0 (JavaHome=old_dir, RunTime Lib = ****) etc., etc. It was stupid to ask, since nobody can save your time here, only to waste even more
