extract tomcat to say, c:\tomcat.. edit the tomcat\bin\startup.bat file to include set JAVA_HOME=c:\jdk1.3 (assuming thats where you installed jdk) On a Win98 machine, you may run out of environment space when you doubleclick this file.. Therefore, rightclick it and go to properties. In the memory tab, set initial environment memory to 32000 and click ok.. this will create another icon in the bin folder.. double clicking this will start tomcat This will get tomcat working.. Any jsp's u write in the webapps will also work.. To compile servlets, you will need to set you classpath I prefer to do this thru the autoexec.bat file.. add this line to your autoexec.bat set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;c:\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar When you have started your computer using this autoexec.bat, jbuilder should be able to compile servlets [This message has been edited by Mak Bhandari (edited April 20, 2001).]
