I am getting a ZipException when starting tomcat. I installed jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4 My OS is Windows XP Professional I placed my class files in: C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes and placed the libraries for my apps in: C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\lib I get the following exception when starting up: Starting service Tomcat-Standalone Apache Tomcat/4.0.4 java.util.zip.ZipException: error in opening zip file at java.util.zip.ZipFile.open(Native Method) at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:110) at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:115) at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:82) ... blah blah blah The only .zip files in my lib directory are: classes111.zip JimiProClasses.zip Any ideas on how to fix?
I have this same problem... No resolution yet. It began as soon as I upgraded to jdk1.4.0. Running winxppro. Not positive of the tomcat version (4.0.4?). Here's the error: I'll post the answer if I figure it out. ken.

ok, figured it out. I'd created a directory called 'old tools.jar' in which I placed, you guessed it, the old tools.jar file. so tomcat's bootstrapper was trying to extract the contents of the ".jar" file and since it happened to have a space and be a directory (not sure which is the actual culprit), I think that's what it blew up on. doh!
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
