Recently I uninstalled and re-installed JDK1.5. Now my tomcat doesnt start... Here are the logs, i have checked the environment variables all are at their place. moreover i am using tomcat not as a service but as an extracted zip file. Wonder why XML Validation is disabled...

If this was my problem I would be starting Tomcat in a command prompt window with startup.bat to watch the error messages. If the Tomcat window popped up and then vanished, I would change startup.bat to read:

(note run instead of start) to ensure the window stays open. This usually is enough to pinpoint the problem.

Thanks William. Actually all the log-info that you see above is from dos prompt, the window stays open but problem is with browser... nothing appears, i mean the page on http local host doesnt open. I have tried changing port number in server.xml too.. but

That would appear to indicate that Tomcat is in fact still running. (You could check with the Windows Task Manager.) So perhaps the question is why is Tomcat not responding?

What actually appears at the browser end? "nothing happens" needs to be amplified.

If the browser does not say something like "unable to connect" then it actually connected and sent a request - now the question becomes why don't I see a response. When this happens to me the first thing I do is use the browser "view source" to see if anything at all has been transmitted.

Thanks Bill! You made me think.
My browser indicated "Connection Failed"

----------------------------------------
The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://localhost/

The following error was encountered:

Connection Failed
The system returned:

(111) Connection refusedThe remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.

Went down to IE->Tools->Options->Connections->LAN settigns and ticked
"Bypass proxy for local addresses"

It works. Thanks again buddy!
