I have made a tar file of Tomcat5.5.9 from "SunOS 5.10 i386" an copied it to "SunOS 5.8 sparc" & untarred it and made the necessary changes & i have also installed the JDK1.5.0 in the SunOS 5.8 but the Tomcat5.5.9 doesnt start.

Any suggestion on this would be helpful

My doubt is that is there anything to do with the JVMs

Thanks in Advance

It could be.

Which do you have installed?
If you plan on deploying JSPs you'll need a full JDK (j2sdk).
Do you have that installed?
Have you set your JAVA_HOME environment variable?
If so, did you test it to make sure it points to the root folder of your JDK installation?

How did you try to start Tomcat?
What happened?
Did you check Tomcat's logs directory to see if any errors/exceptions were reported?

Thanks Ben for the reply

I have installed the JDK 1.5.0 in my "SunOS 5.8 sun sparc" and set the JAVA_HOME,and my file points to the JDK 1.5.0 bin.I did not find any problem with the JAVA.

my Logs says this:

Bad level value for property: .level
Bad level value for property:

at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.await(
at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start(
.....6 more
when ever i started the tomcat-5.5.9

when ever i do a

$java -version on sun sparc 5.8
it shows java version "1.3.1_07" this a problem?. The JVM is a
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_07-b02, mixed mode)

What can be the Problem?

Thanks in Advance
