I can't get
to work. When I run
I get the following error:
The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly.
I have CATALINA_HOME defined as %TOMCAT_HOME%
I have TOMCAT_HOME defined as C:\Users\Mel\Java\tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.35\
CLASSPATH is C:\Users\Mel\Java\tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.35\lib\servlet.jar
The directory for C:\Users\Mel\Java\tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.35\ definitely contains bin, and C:\Users\Mel\Java\tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.35\bin\ contains startup.bat
What am I doing wrong?

Try removing that trailing backslash at the end of the path. Then from a command prompt, do a "set" to make sure the environment variable looks the way you expect it to.

You shouldn't have CATALINA_HOME defined as anything! All you need to define is JAVA_HOME. The startup scripts take care of the rest.
