This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I've installed apache-tomcat 5.5.27 on Window as a standalone app. I've added a log4j.properties to commons/classes and the jars for log4j-2.1 and commons-logging-1.1.1 to common/libs. I start tomcat from Eclipse Ganymede and there is no output on the console and the server does not respond. For example: http://localhost:8080/ returns a 404.
There is no log file and no indication of what is wrong.
I don't know how to figure this out without some sort of indication from Tomcat as to what is wrong.
