Hello buddies,
I'm an absolute beginner to servlets and trying to configure Tomcat. Following is my autoexec.bat...
set ANT_HOME=C:\program files\apache group\jakarta-tomcat
set TOMCAT_HOME=C:\program files\apache group\jakarta-tomcat
When I run this works good. But when I run "startup.bat" from bin of tomcat directory...its says...Bad Command or File...
Looking for an earliest reply...

The first thing to do is to move those Tomcat files out of directories that have spaces in the names. Those spaces completely mess up parsing of commands in the batch file.
Be sure to report the operating system you are using if/when you have further problems, and post a more complete report of any error message.
