    Tomcat is not running

    Ashish Newbie

      dear sir,
      I have downloaded the JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3 from your site.We are building a website for our business and we want to maintain our own server.Sir we have Windows 2000 Proffessional as the Operating system. We extracted the JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3 in "C:\" drive.We set the
      Path = C:\JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3\tomcat;
      classpath= C:\JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar;

      For the Tomcat

      after setting this when i tried to enter the JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3 directory from the command prompt by typing on the command prompt C:\>cd JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3 then the error message flashed on the prompt that invalid directory.

      After that i type on the command prompt C:\>echo %path%
      then it showed me the path for the tomcat C:\>JBOSS-~1.3\tomcat;

      then i tried to enter in the JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3 by typing on the command prompt C:\>cd JBOSS-~1.3 then i got entered into the directory.

      i have set the TOMCAT_HOME = C:\JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3\bin;
      JAVA_HOME = C:\jdk1.3.1_04;( same here that i am going inside the Java directory by the name JDK13~1.1_0 means by typing C:\>cd JDK13~1.1_0 )and also setted the other required setting.

      now when i am typing on the command prompt
      C:\>JBOSS-~1.3\tomcat\bin>tomcat run
      then it is giving the message that:
      "Unable to locate servlet.jar, chect the value of TOMCAT_HOME."
      i have also checked by changing the value of the
      TOMCAT_HOME = C:\JBOSS-~1.3\tomcat; and
      classpath = C:\JBOSS-~1.3\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar;

      after doing such changes when i am running the tomcat the same error message is comming.
      I have got the MSDOS7 .

      i have also tried by setting the value of the TOMCAT_HOME in the tomcat.bat file in the bin directory of the tomcat inside JBoss-2.4.4_Tomcat-3.2.3.
      then also same error message is popping.

      Please sortout my problem and what could be the reason for that as soon as possible.

      Regards Ashish
