I am new to apache tomcat..
I have installed apache tomcat 6.0 and Java 1.6
after installation is done, I did set the environment variables..
classpath=.;C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\webdir\WEB-INF\classes
CATALINA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0

I tried starting the tomcat server and tested the installation http://localhost:8080/
but it is displaying some other page (i.e. Oracle license agreement)

please help me out

Dear Santosh,

Some other program is serving port 8080 and not Tomcat. Use netstat to find out which program is listening on port 8080 as discussed on . Also, check the Tomcat logs for errors.
