I'm new in JSP/Servlet and tried to install Tomcat server.
I set the environment variables as the docs wrote, but it doesn't works.
I started startup.bat, the Tomcat shows:
Using Catalina_home...
Using Java_home...
and I thought, Tomcat has benn started,but not.
The browser cant find http://localhost:8080
I have no other things on this port, I did'nt find tomcat.exe in my PC's process list.
Anyone can help?
best regards,

If you try executing startup.bat from a command prompt window with a normal Tomcat install, and a second window does not appear and stay open, then something is failing. There have been MANY discussions in this forum by people with this problem - you should review the last few weeks of posts for some ideas.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
