Hi,
I have windows2000 operating systen and downloaded j2sdk1.4.1 and also installed tomcat4.0.4.
In the instructions it says
edit install_dir/bin/catalina.bat and change the following:
if not "%JAVA_HOME%" == "" goto gotJavaHome
echo You must set JAVA_HOME to point at ...
goto cleanup
:gotJavaHome
to:
if not "%JAVA_HOME%" == "" goto gotJavaHome
set JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3_01
:gotJavaHome

but unanble to find the above given line
if not "%JAVA_HOME%" == "" goto gotJavaHome
echo You must set JAVA_HOME to point at ...
goto cleanup
:gotJavaHome
in catalina.bat.
Any suggestions as to how i can set JAVA_HOME

hi,
u set JAVA_HOME in system level. Like
start ->setting->control-panel,there select system and then advanced tab and then environment variables button.This will open a pop up window,there u can create new variable JAVA_HOME and set the value to the installed jdk directory.
Incase u get any error..pls do write back.
All the best

James
