You should examing the startup.bat file - the first line (on my copy anyway) is
@echo off
perhaps your batch file is damaged?
I suggest removing the @echo off so you can see error messages. (if any)

Sanjay:
Couple of things...i wonder what version of tomcat
u r running.is it tomcat 3.1?
also u as i know, the startup script is in the bin dir
so i would expect you to give:
c:\tomcat\bin\startup
As an example on my sys. (win 98) i use:
c:\jakarta-tomcat\bin\startup
i am also a newbie to tomcat....
Please post further details, so we could help.

Thanks guys it works now.
I looked at the startup script. The startup.bat script calls tomcat.bat. And in tomcat.bat file while starting the server it creates a new window by 'start' command. This window was not getting close. I comment out the start command and allowed it to exceute in the same window, and it works fine.
What do u think would be the problem, start command not getting enough memory??
Cheers

Goto your MSDOS window, top left corner use
right mouse button, pull-down menu, select "properties"
Goto the memory tab and under the
"Initial Environment" use something higher
like 4096 or something.
This is also explained in the JSDK and Tomcat helps.

u could even start and stop using :
tomcat start
and
tomcat stop
from the command prompt.
However, I have a concern. Could anybody please let me know how to associate Tomcat with the Apache server. What r the modifications to be made to the httpd.conf file of apache and should anything be modified in the tomcat config file..
