PS : I havent written any simple .jsp page till this point.I just want to get the http://localhost:8080 comeup in the browser, must to the same way as i get when using the startup from the bin of Tomcat.
Kindly let me know what the problem could be.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I coudnt get a satisfactory answer while searching the forums.
I just did the same thing two days ago. and everything worked!! I think the problem is that you have to upgrade to the lastest JAVA. The Release Notes states Tomcat 5.0 is designed to run on J2SE 5.0 and later. "If using J2SE 1.4 JRE, the compatibility package must be downloaded and expanded inside the folder where Tomcat was installed."
