I am having problem to use tomcat server for my application. I downloaded apache-tomcat-6.0.18.exe from apache site and installed in my system. I am using Vista Home Basic operating system. JDK version is 1.6.0_10.
I have configured the server properly by changing environment variables. Then I start tomcat server to deploy my web app. My web app works properly. But when I restart my system, from next time, tomcat server stops working.
Can anybody please tell me why this problem is occurring ? I can use tomcat only once, if I restart or shut down my system and then want to deploy web app, tomcat does not work. Even the homepage ( http://localhost:8080) is not shown.
I think it is based on which type of version and platform you use for application and as per my knowledge server is not automatically started when system restarted you should consult with javaranch member I'm not sure also you can check apache tomcat website for documentation details.
