Hi!,
I've installed tomcat on linux using following rpm file jakarta-tomcat-5.5.6.tar.gz
I also installed java using following rpm
j2sdk-1_4_2_06-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Now when I start tomcat I see following in Catalina.out
$cat catalina.out
This release of Apache Tomcat was packaged to run on J2SE 5.0
or later. It can be run on earlier JVMs by downloading and
installing a compatibility package from the Apache Tomcat
binary download page.
Please advise what I need to do now..
If I need to uninstall java and reinstall send me exact file name to download and also syntax to unistall java.

Thanks
SA

You can either upgrade java

or get the compat packages that allow tomcat to run with j2sdk-1.4.

Alternately use one of the Tomcat 5.0.x releases which work with Java 1.4 - I am running 5.0.28 on Linux - Sun's Java Desktop System (SuSE).
