hi all
Thanks for your (mike/nasser) help
I am able to run jsps and servlets in tomcat4.0.1
Steps involved are
1.download tomcat4.0.1 from http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat-4.0/release/v4.0.1/bin/
2.download and install jdk (version 1.2 or later) from http://java.sun.com/j2se/
3.set CATALINA_HOME=<tomcat install path>
example set CATALINA_HOME=C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1
Note this should be set in autoexec.bat.
4.set JAVA_HOME=<yoyr jdk install path>
example set JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3
Note this should be set in autoexec.bat.
5.Check you have set path and classpath variables for jdk instalation
ie path variable should contain c:\jdk<ver>\bin;
and classpath should contain .;c:\jdk<ver>\lib;
6.start tomcat by double clicking startup.bat located in bin directory of tomcat install directory
7.To check succesful start up open yr favourite browser and type in addressbar http://localhost:8080 you should get tomcat index page loaded and try out jsp and servlet examples.
8.Shutdown tomcat by double clicking shutdown.bat in bin dir.
9.NOTE if you get out of environment space
plesae do the following
right click on startup.bat
choose properties
click on memory tab
set initialenvironment to 4096.
you will see a "shortcut startup" created in the bin directory
use this shortcut for starting tomcat
10 for shutdown also follow the above step
Thanks all

Hi Mohan,
I installed Tomcat 4.0.1 following your path, but when I double click startup.bat in the bin subdirectory, to start Tomcat, I got DOS message: "bad command or file name".These are the lines from AUTOEXEC.BAT file:
PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\JDK1.3\BIN;C:\JDK1.3\LIB
SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3
Can you help me? Thanks.

hi Berko Dimitrijevic
sorry for delay in reply
check your autoexec.bat contains following lines apart from your own other entries for running other applications such as javamail etc
PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;
set classpath=.;c:\jdk1.3\lib;c:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1\lib;
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3
SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1
please ensure that you set JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME in autoexec.bat corresponds to your installation of these in your machine
i have installed jdk1.3 and tomcat as
C:\JDK1.3 and
C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1
and either restart the system or run autoexec on command line
I you get out of environment space on start up
do the following
right click on startup.bat in bin dir and choose properties
click on memory tab and set initial environment to 4096
you will notice windows create shortcut msdos program startup in the bin directory itself
start tomcat bu double clicking this icon instead of startup.bat.
pl do the same for shutdown.bat also
hope this helps
