Please I am new to tomcat server, I want to install it with cyclos. According to cyclos documentation I am to start tomcat by clicking startup.bat. When I did this it only prompts and closes. i do not know what is going on. Please your wealth of experience shared to resolve this will be highly appreciated.

That JRebel thing was an AD, not a comment.

Cyclos gave you bad advice - open a command prompt window, navigate to the directory that has starup.bat and execute it from the command line.

The window will stay open and hopefully you will find meaningful error messages.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
