Friends!!
I have installed tomcat v4 in directory CATALINA_HOME (as per some java book). I have also set the environment variable JAVA_HOME. When i click on startup in Catalina_home/bin, the console screen comes and goes away.
To check whether the tomcat has started or not, i open the browser and type in http://localhost:8080 but the reply i get is web page not found.
Please help me what could be the problem.
Thanks,
