Hi all,
I tried to install Tomat 3.1 on windows NT.
Following environmental variables were set
JAVA_HOME C:\jdk1.2
TOMCAT_HOME c:\jakarta-tomcat
PATH %PATH%;c:\jakarta-tomcat\bin;C:\JavaWebServer\bin;C:\JavaWebServer\jre;C:\JavaWebServer\servlets;C:\VisualCafePDE\BIN;C:\VisualCafePDE\JAVA\BIN;C:\VCafe\BIN;C:\VCafe\JAVA\BIN;C:\Js dk2.0\src:C:\Jsdk2.0\bin
CLASSPATH
%CLASSPATH%;C:\jdk1.2\lib\tools.jar;C:\Study\examples
Opened DOS window and typed
C:\jakarta-tomcat\bin> tomcat start.
I am getting the following exception

The first thing I notice is that you placed c:\jakarta-tomcat\bin in your path. By doing this it is not necessary to go to the c:\jakarta-tomcat\bin directory to run tomcat start or startup. You also need to add the line c:\jakarta-tomcat\lib to your classpath. It needs access to the servlet class files. I would shorten your directory from c:\jakarta-tomcat to c:\tomcat. It is much easier to use like that.

I hope its helps, feel free to email me noahcarroll@juno.com

Hi,
I was having the same problem.
Just open server.xml and go to the line where you see:
<Parameter name="handler" value="org.apache.tomcat.service.http.HttpConnectionHandler"/>
just copy and paste the above line again ie repeat the line.
If you don't want to do this use jdk1.3
