It says BASEDIR not set. What should I set it to?
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>rem Make sure prerequisite environment va
riables are set
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>if not "C:\JBuilder6\JDK1.3.1" == "" goto
gotJavaHome
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>if exist "C:\JBuilder6\JDK1.3.1\bin\java.
exe" goto okJavaHome
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>if not "" == "" goto gotBasedir
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>echo The BASEDIR environment variable is
not defined
The BASEDIR environment variable is not defined
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>echo This environment variable is needed
to run this program
This environment variable is needed to run this program
C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\bin>goto end
The system cannot find the batch label specified - end

Actually now I got rid of teh BASEDIR problem by defining it correctly. Howver when i start itat teh dos command prompt teh window just dispears. It doesn;t seem to start at all. How can I see where the problem is. When I try to shutdown, it gives an exception because may be it has not been started at all. Can anyone advise...

Instead of double clicking the shortcut (or from the start menu) open a DOS window, browse to the bin directory and type in the startup command, and when the batch file errors out, the window will stay open.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
