I am getting the following exception when I start my tomcat server. I understand that the server is starting up fine but I am not able to load the servlet-examples app that comes with TOMCAT. I am using Tomcat 5.5.16 w/ java 1.5_06

Not sure if there is causing the other error I get but .... I also am not able to get the InitialContext() for the app server... here is the code...



Here is the exception....

javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial

I had the same problem. Use the .zip, not the Windows .exe installer.

All the best,
