Hi I'm new to servlet. And i want to set up environment for that. I have installed apache-tomcat 6.0.16. But when i tried to start up it, from bin of apache-tomcat but command : startup.bat shows me below message.

Neither JAVA_HOME not JRE_HOME environment variable is defined.At least one of these is needed to run this program.

Can any one please help me on defining this variable.

Thanks in advance.

JAVA_HOME needs to point to the directory where your JRE (or JDK) is installed. That directory contains the "bin" and "lib" directories (amongst others).
