dear ranchers, the following is mentioned in tomcat documentation, "If using a J2SE 1.4 JRE, the compatibility package must be downloaded and expanded inside the folder where Tomcat was installed". What it means.i am using tomcat 5.5.9.& jre 1.4. My problem was that when i start browser to verify tomcat installation,it gives the Error Message like "the page cannot be displayed
Do you really have just the JRE, without the SDK components? A client of mine just went through a lot of reinstalling before we found that the Tomcat startup.bat checks for .exes that are only in the full SDK. Bill
If you install tomcat 5.5 with the ".exe" installer on Windows, you can run it with just a JRE. The wrapper script for unix has been updated to look for JRE_HOME or JAVA_HOME but the bat script was never done.
The feeling among the Tomcat commiters is that people using the bat scripts on Windows are probably developers or power users and will have the full JDK.
