The error means that your copy of Tomcat is not running on the 1.6 JVM; you've got some older version of Java installed as well, and Tomcat is running on this older JVM.

Windows systems often have an extra java.exe in C:\WINDOWS or some other similarly odd place which causes this kind of problem.

Thank you for you reply

you've got some older version of Java installed as well, and Tomcat is running on this older JVM.

I'm using suse 10.3
Please could you tell me how to remove this older version of java and how
to make tomcat running on my new jvm?

If you have a Java installation folder you can log in as "su" and delete it. You will of course have to install a new Java installation; if it is in /usr/java you will have to add the PATH by adding this sort of line to ~/.bashrc or something similar.

export PATH=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_10/bin/:$PATH

You can use the same line when you open a shell, so setting the PATH for the lifetime of that shell.

It can't find a jar file on your CLASSPATH that contains the HttpServlet class. This is usually a jar file called something like j2ee.jar, but I'd also check the Tomcat documentation.....

At last I worked fine!!

The classpath problem was caused by my catalina.sh setting
It seems that the tomcat starts using JRE_HOME.
so I change this line
echo "using JRE_HOME: $JRE_HOME" into
echo "using JAVA_HOME: $JAVA_HOME"

after recompiling i got my program worked fine

could someone tell me why this make it work?

JRE_HOME and JAVA_HOME are two different variables that can each have different values.

Typically (but not always) the JRE_HOME is set to where your _public_ JRE is installed, something like C:\Program Files\Java\....

Typically (but not always) the JAVA_HOME is set to where your JDK is installed, C:\jdk1.5.0_16\

The JDK installation also has a private JRE, e.g. C:\jdk1.5.0_16\jre

I hope that poor example helps a little
