hi there
i have downloaded tomcat 3.2.1 and i have set the JAVA_HOME and TOMCAT_HOME already but when i try to startup tomcat they give me this statement : please point JAVA_HOME to the jdk installation directory. how do i solve this problem??
pls help me check if this is correct: JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk1.3.1
TOMCAT_HOME = c:\tomcat\bin i set this 2 in autoexec.bat file.
Thanks in advance

hi,
the tomcat configuration should look like this:

set JAVA_HOME=c:\jdk1.3
set TOMCAT_HOME=c:\tomcat3
set classpath=.;c:\tomcat3\lib\servlet.jar;c:\tomcat3\lib\jasper.jar
tomcat_home should point to root directory not bin directory.

Jane:
foll. the advice above and then open a DOS window
and start tomcat. if you still face that problem,
then try to echo the JAVA_HOME variable and see if
the value set in your autoexec has been taken or not...
echo %JAVA_HOME%

let us know if you have other probs.
