I have installed preconfigured Tomcat package 5.5.9 from coreservlets.com and changed the directory name as Tomcat 5.5 under C: drive.
When I try to run the start.bat from install-dir/bin or using bin/catalina run from command prompt I get this long error message. Can any of you tell me how to solve this problem. I forgot to tell you that I have J2SDK 1.4.2 installed on my C: drive. I have also set two environment variables in Windows XP 1. JAVA_HOME c:\j2sdk1.4.2_08 2. TOMCAT_HOME c:\Tomcat 5.5

Thanks for replying William, I have got a compatibility to be installed with jdk 1.4.2 but it is a zip file and I do not know where to extract it and that has not been mentioned in the tutorial itself.
In the meanwhile, I have installed j2se 1.5.0_09 and I have changed the Java_home system variable and I am now able to run Tomcat server and jsp files execute on it....
hi ! i will tell you easiest way for solving this problem.. first , start the tomcat by using command prompt ..start->run->cmd-> (type) tomcat5.exe(if you are using tomcat5.5) press enter ,now your tomcat severe will run without showing coyote severe not started note:do not run the tomcat in usualway..
