Hi,
I installed tomcat 5.5 and I use jdk 1.5. , both on WIN98.
Tomcat gives me the error "out of environment space".
Please help.
Thanx in advance,
Shankar.

If you do a search on this forum with the keywords 'environment space' you should find quite a few threads that discuss this.

In a nutshell, by default, win98 doesn't have allot enough memory for the environment variables needed to run Tomcat. Once you increase this, Tomcat will run fine.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
