I have installed tomcat 4.1.29 on HP-UX. after starting tomcat I can see tthe following error in localhost_admin_log..txt log file.
>>
javax.servlet.ServletException: Wrapper cannot find servlet class org.apache.webapp.admin.ApplicationServlet or a class it depends on
....
....
----- Root Cause -----
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.webapp.admin.ApplicationServlet
at org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader.loadClass(WebappClassLoader.java:1443)
at org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader.loadClass(WebappClassLoader.java:1289)
..
..

When I look for that class, the classname is actually truncated. Not only that class, many of the class names in
$CATALINA_HOME/server/webapps/admin/WEB-INF/classes/org/apache/webapp/admin
are truncated.
Any idea how to solve this? The server seems to run. But when I try to make some native calls they are failing. I wonder if it is related to these errors.
Any help is appreciated.
Thx

It sounds like that is the cause of your problems.
I don't know anything about your operating system but how did you isntall tomcat? Perhaps the extraction tool you used had a problem? Check the archive to see if they are OK inside it?
