Hi everybody,
I think my problem is probably simple and am sure the experts can help.
The Basics:
CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem;C:\WINNT\Java\Classes\;C:\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar;C:\tomcat\lib\jasper.jar;C:\tomcat\lib\ant.jar;C:\tom cat\lib\webserver.jar;C:\tomcat\lib\xml.jar;C:\jdk1.2.2\lib\tools.jar;
I am attempting to use Tomcat stand alone ver. 3.1.1 on Win 2000 Pro
I believe I have all the environment variables covered. No changes were made to startup,shutdown,tomcat .bat files.
The error I receive when I attempt to start Tomcat is:
The system cannot find batch label specified - startServer
When I use jdk1.3 with the proper changes made to the environment variables i still receive the same message.
Hope someone can help!

I want more links with JSP resources, somebody would give me a good links ?

should probably be:


remove the semi-colon at the end.
For starting Tomcat you can use either:
tomcat start or startup

You need to include the current path too,i.e. "."
I agree. Here's the link:
