Hi, all
I am testing an application in win98.
everyhting is working in winNT/2000.
but, it starts the Tomcat but can't start the application in win98.
the propertitie files and startup.bat seems don't know some commands. I need to hard coding to make tomcat start the commands. Does the tomcat not match with win98?
anyone has similar problem?

Tomcat works fine in Win98. The usual problem is that your DOS console window is not set up with sufficient environment memory.
Open a MS-DOS prompt windoe. Click on the upper left corner and select the properties option. Pick the memory tab. Set initial environment to 4096 and close.
The reason this is a problem is that Tomcat tries to set some really long environment variables.
Don't start Tomcat by clicking on the .bat file, open a MS-DOS prompt window and run from the command line so you can see the actual error messages.

Bill,
thx. I'll give it a try in another win98 pc and report the problem to test it.
I'll still leave my hard coding there since it works perfectly now.
cos I can't assume the other people will know how to deal with similar problems. I'm glad people didn't use Win98 a lot now.
thx again.

I don't think they have programmed the TOMCAT for 95/98. On NT/2000 it works perfectly but on 95/98 it doesn't even gets started up.

Tomcat works fine or me on windows 98. Like William said, you just need to make some adjustments to your settings.

I just went through 3 days of getting Tomcat 3.2 & MySql installed & running on my machine (with the help of the good folks here) Try looking at this thread..it helped me thru the whole process: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/003416.html
There are classpath changes you must make, but I didnt do any of the XML changes & it works like gangbusters.
