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,

Warm Regards, S.Iyer

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.
