hey guys,

I'm getting the following error when I start-up my Tomcat 5 server and I don't know what's causing it.


Catalina.start using conf/server.xml: java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name org.apache.coyote.tomcat5.LocalStrings, locale en_US

This is what is causing the Exception

This means that your tomcat either has a different locale then US then the one you expect to have, or that you don't have the property file 'locale_en_US.properties' so that tomcat can se it.

If you have the property file, but with a wrong locale on it - you need to change it, or ad a new property file with the right locale.

e.g. if I should have my own locale property file it would have the name 'locale_da_DK.properties'

Thanks Rene for your response. where can I find the 'locale_en_US.properties' file? Does it come with the Tomcat install?

I don't know if you are using tomcat 5.0.0, but back in 2003 there was a thread with the same problem. Thread: setting up Tomcat

Back in 2003 the error was associated with the webapp/servlets-examples code.

The last post was
I gave up so I tried Window 2000, and it worked (!) even though I just accessed the same resources (same path/classpath) from different partition. It stated that Tomcat5.0.0 should work with Window XP, so I guess I was missing something. Thank you for your help
