Hi ,

I have downloaded and extracted the tomcat zip folder ON HDD. Then created the Catalina env variable

C:\Documents and Settings\hrishik>echo %CATALINA_HOME%

Now when I try to start my tomcat ( Catalina.bat run )

I get following error

C:\Documents and Settings\hrishik>C:\eclipse3.1\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.5\bin\
a.bat run
Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\eclipse3.1\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.5\
Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\eclipse3.1\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.5\
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\eclipse3.1\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.5\\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: P:\dist\msjava\jdk\1.4.2_02
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina
at org.apache.catalina.loader.StandardClassLoader.loadClass(Stand
at org.apache.catalina.loader.StandardClassLoader.loadClass(Stand
at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.init(
at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(

Please help me to solve this problem
