but i did know to start Tomcat! I did download Tomcat 4.0 and in my folder ‘C:tomcat’ adn when i did install it i have had a folder Apache that is appeared : C:tomcat\Apache\bin...,
so in my computer i did set my environnement variable like this :
- CATILINA_HOME --> C:\tomcat\Apache\bin;
- CLASSPATH --> C:\Java\Program;C:\jdk1.3.1_02\lib\tools.jar;C:\jdk1.3.1_02\bin;C:\tomcat\Apache\bootstrap.jar
- JAVA_HOME --> C:\jdk1.3.1_02\bin
- PATH --> C:\PROGRA~1\Borland\Delphi5\Projects\Bpl;C:\PROGRA~1\Borland\vbroker\jre\Bin;C:\PROGRA~1\Borland\vbroker\Bin;C:\PROGRA~1\Borland\Delphi5\Bin;%SYSTEMROOT%;%SYSTEMROOT%\system32;%SYS TEMROOT%\system32\WBEM;C:\Program Files\Support Tools\;C:\jdk1.3.1_02\bin;C:\PROGRA~1\ULTRAE~1;

What exactly is wrong? You told us everything you did but not what the problem is...
If it is a question of how to start it then you can either double click 'start.bat' in the bin directory of your tomcat install or check your programs on your start button the executable sometimes puts shortcuts there if you used the exe installer.

Hi Dave,
I thank you for your help....
but my problem is:
when i'm in the command line (Ms-Dos-) in the repertory:
---> C:\Tomcat\Apache\bin>
I write 'startup' and there is an error that appareas by saying :

Using CATALINA_BASE: ..
Using CATALINA_HOME: ..
Using CLASSPATH: ..\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\jdk1.3.1_02;\lib\tools.jar
Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3.1_02;
The system can not find the file C:\jdk1.3.1_02;\bin\java.
I think now it's clearer for that you can help me.
Thanks.

It sounds like your java class files are not in the JAVA_HOME.
Make sure your files really are in C:\jdk1.3.1_02

They really are in C:\jdk1.3.1_02

Found a problem:

Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3.1_02;
The system can not find the file C:\jdk1.3.1_02;\bin\java.

Notice the semicolon after C:\jdk1.3.1_02. Notice that the semicolon is getting into command to execute java "C:\jdk1.3.1_02;\bin\java"

Hi Thomas,
I tank you very much...I come to find out so my error just before you write .
I had 2 errors :
1. The first is CATALINA_HOME instead of CATILINA_HOME
2. Thje second was whith the semi colon, we don't put it at the end of line, like this :
JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3.1_02 instead of [B]
JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3.1_02;

Now ,it works .......Thanks .

It does bother me when people ask for lots of help, then respond to the correct answer with something along the lines of "thanks for trying, but I figured it out myself". Sorry if I am out of line here.

Thomas (Whalen, not Paul),
I'll preface this entire post with : all is opinion!

It's kinda out of line.

We should all be so smart never to make (as my grade nine math teacher called them) "silly mistakes".

I'm not saying I never feel a certain amount of chagrin when I see my own efforts at solving a problem go to waste, and sometimes with some posters, you get the feeling "oh *sure* you figured it out".

But well... Engin did say thanks and the presence of a smilie always seems self-deprecating.

Frankly, I prefer this sort of reply to total silence.

Engin did say thanks so I didn't feel that my helping him was wasted. I thought his response was quite friendly.

Personally, I like to see the resolution to a problem, even if the original poster is the one who figured it out.

If nothing else, a record of the problem and solution now exists, as a beacon to others who would otherwise befall the same fate.
