Hi All,

I am trying to run tomcat server.Tomcat version is 4.1.31.
It says

JAVA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly.This environment variable is needed to run this program.
NB:JAVA_HOME should point to JDK not to a JRE.

I have set JAVA_HOME as C:\j2sdk1.4.2_05 where my jdk is located.

Can any of you please help me out soon.

Thanks,in advance
Nalini.

This might be obvious, but have you tried to
echo %JAVA_HOME%
to check if it is indeed set, before you run the tomcat server?

I guess you should give your BIN Directory as your JAVA_HOME

No - do NOT give the bin directory as JAVA_HOME. The bin directory belongs in your PATH but it is not JAVA_HOME. Here is my current setting.

Where and how are you setting JAVA_HOME?
Which operating system are you using?
