i have some very,very basic doubts. please spare some of your tim e to clear these: 1. in order to deploy servelts onto a site, is it necessary that we should have a java enabled server.?? or can we just link to the servlet from a webpage, on click of which the servlet will be invoked? 2. on running the startup.bat file. on my tomcat, i get an error message in a dos window such as nvalid ConectionHandler or something . why is this. ,y server isnt starting up
"1. in order to deploy servelts onto a site, is it necessary that we should have a java enabled server.?" Since a servlet is a Java program that runs on the server, of course your server has to be Java enabled. "2. on running the startup.bat file. on my tomcat, i get an error message in a dos window such as nvalid ConectionHandler or something . why is this. " There are lots of reasons for Tomcat not starting. I spent days tracing one that sounds like this. It turned out to be due to a JAR file left over from an earlier installation of JSDK. I recommend that you temporarily remove the @echo off from the startup.bat and tomcat.bat files so you can see complete error messages. As a general rule, when asking for help, specify the operating system and JDK version you are using. It sometimes makes a big difference. Bill
