I'M USING A WIN98 SYSTEM. AND HAVE DOWNLOADED TOMCAT 3.2.3. 1) jdk1.3 is installed in the directory 'D:\jdk1.3" 2) tomcat is unzipped in the directory 'D:\Tomcat" VARIABLE 'JAVA_HOME' IS SET TO 'D:\JDK1.3' 'TOMCAT_HOME' IS SET TO 'D:\TOMCAT' AFTER FOLLOWING THE NECESSARY INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS OF SETTING-UP THE 'JAVA_HOME' AND 'TOMCAT_HOME' VARIABLES WHEN I TRIED TO RUN THE 'STARTUP' BATCH FILE IN THE DIRECTORY 'D:\TOMCAT\BIN' WITHOUT SUPPLYING ANY PARAMETERS I GOT AN ERROR LIKE THIS ON MY DOS SCREEN : "Out of environment space Out of environment space Out of environment space Out of environment space Starting Tomcat in new window Bad Command or filename" This is confusing me and brings me to a basic question as whether it is possible to INSTALL TOMCAT ON WIN98 SYSTEM

Hi. Yes.You can use Win 98. I think your problem can be solved by changing/increasing the MS-DOS' initial environment memory. Just open MS DOS prompt window,click the properties button and then choose memory,increase the ini.env to say 4096 and restart your computer. this should solve your problem. Hope this helps. regds. swaminathan.
Thank you Swaminathan for replying. As per your advice i could manage to recover from the problem faced. But now on running startup i get a window titled 'java' (dosbased) and with the following content. Tomcat: setAttribute home=D:\Tomcat 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextXmlReader: Context Config=$TOMCAT_HOME\conf\apps-127.0.0.1.xml 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextXmlReader: Context config=$TOMCAT_HOME\conf\apps-examples.xml 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextXmlReader: Context config=$TOMCAT_HOME\conf\apps-admin.xml 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - AutoWebApp: Already loaded: DEFAULT:/admin 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - AutoWebApp: Already loaded: DEFAULT:/examples 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - AutoWebApp: Auto-Adding DEFAULT:/ 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextManager: Adding DEFAULT:/examples 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextManager: Adding DEFAULT:/admin 2001-08-01 19:00:34 - ContextManager: Adding DEFAULT:/ROOT 2001-08-01 19:00:35 - ContextManager: Init time 1160 2001-08-01 19:00:35 - Http10Interceptor: Starting on 8080 2001-08-01 19:00:35 - Ajp12Interceptor: Starting on 8007 2001-08-01 19:00:35 - Ajp13Interceptor: Starting on 8009 2001-08-01 19:00:35 - ContextManager: Startup 50 What can i make out of this. Does it mean that Tomcat has started and i can now start working on. Can i start the administration? If yes, what should be done. Regards Shomal
Shomal: Yes, Tomcat seems to have started on port 8080. Now point your browser to: http://localhost:8080 This URL will take you to the default tomcat home page on your installation and you can run the examples. Good luck.
