I have downloaded tomcat as specified in Head first servlets. I am trying to install this on windows xp. After installation when i try to test the service it says server not found. I'm testing using http://localhost:8080

Please advise

Not to be funny, but did you start the server, if so check the catalina.out for any errors.

Well, i figured this issue out. It had to do with jdk. tomcat 5.x happens to require jdk1.5. On reinstalling jdk1.5 it worked.

Thanks though.
