I seem to be able to start up Tomcat okay, but my browser does not seem to access the default Tomcat home page, or any other servlet classes. Note that I am a beginner in Web technology. I have installed and tested Tomcat 4.0.1 on Win 2000Prof with the following procedure:- 1)Installed JDK1.4 on my machine 2)Installed the Jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1.exe files to directory called d:\Tomcat 3)Set the environment variable CATALINA_HOME to d:\Tomcat 4)Set the JAVA_HOME variable to d:\j2sdk1.4.0 5)Changed the classpath to include d:\Tomcat\common\lib\servlet.jar 6)Opened up a DOS prompt and gone to d:\Tomcat\bin 7)Typed echo %JAVA_HOME% and echo %CATALINA_HOME% to check the variables are correctly set 8)Typed the command startup which starts Tomcat in a separate window 9)I open my Internet Explorer 5 browser 10)I type in http://localhost:8080 11)Instead of getting the default Tomcat page I get a page similar to the following:- Index of NameLast modifiedSize public/ sys/ Xdbconfig.xml 12)When I add any other input to the url in 10) above such as http://localhost:8080/index.html as directed in a Wrox text book, my browser prompts me to connect 13)After connecting the lower right hand side of my browser shows that I am on a local intranet, but all that comes up is a “Page cannot be found error” 14)I have tried the SCWCD Manning book examples by doing the following :- Tomcat\webapps\chapter01\WEBINF\classes\HelloWorldServlet.class 15)After restarting Tomcat I try to type in http://localhost:8080/chapter01/servlet/HelloWorldServlet 16)Again my browser asks me to connect so I do 17)Once connected I again get a “Page cannot be found error” Other queries/info which may relate in solving the above:- 1)I don’t know if this is related but when I shutdown a java.net.Connection error is shown on my screen with a large stack trace that goes through from top to bottom as follows:- java.net.PlainSocketImp, java.net.Socket, org.apache.catalina.startup, org.apache.catalina.execute org.apache.catalina.process sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl, sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImp.invoke() java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke() org.apache.catalina.startup.main() 2)Furthermore, I don’t know if this is of any significance, but I have previously Oracle9i installed on my computer which automatically installed what appears to be Apache HTTP server. Could this be causing some sort of conflict? I have been tearing my hair out trying to solve this problem. Any help would be very much appreciated.
