Hi all...
I downloaded the tomcat for website.

After downloading i followed all the step in the following website

In which they have asked to test the server by clicking the startup.bat file.When i did that command prompt window gets opened.After running few lines the window gets hanged.

The final line in the command prompt appears like this

INFO:JK running ID=0 time=0/40 config=C:\jakarat-tomcat-4.1.31\bin\..\conf\

after which the window is hanging.

It will be great if someone helps me to solve this problem.

If you get to that INFO line, Tomcat may be running just fine - that window should stay open and will show System.out output. Did you try to connect to localhost:8080

In general, when trying to get Tomcat running DO NOT use the click on startup.bat method. Instead open a command prompt window, navigate to the TOMCAT_HOME /bin directory.
Do the "set" command and verify that the environment variable JAVA_HOME points to the correct SDK.
If that looks right, run startup.bat directly. Take a look at the paths that startup says it is using to see if they make sense.
