    Tomcat Config???/

    joek71 Newbie

      Hi guys, I am new here. And I am new to Tomcat, can someone assis me in installing tomcat and configuring it? When I install tomcat it says this:

      Couldn't find a Java Development Kit installed.But I have it installed on my drive c, here is the path to it.
      C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.1_02

      Now also when I try to run it from startup it says this:
      Windows cannot find '-Djava.endoresed.dirs='
      What does this mean and how do I fix it. I also have installed Visual cafe, and that sets up all the classpath and the other stuff. How or what file do I configure so it point to my J2re directory?

      Thanks in advance,

          check your ClassPath in the environment variables

            Probably your system CLASSPATH, but I would put the JDK in a path without spaces too. I'm just superstitious about that. I am somewhat new to Tomcat and JBoss, so I cannot help any further yet.

              You must download java sdk1.4 kit from www.sun.com and install it. What you have in C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.1_02 is java runtime environment for running simple applets and not the full java sdk. You must download java sdk1.4.
              After installing java sdk1.4 go to control panel, click system, click advanced, click environment variables, click on system variable, enter new field, on variable name type JAVA_HOME, on value type C:\jdk1.4 this depends where you install the jdk.
              Finally set the classpath by entering new setting,
              type CLASSPATH on name and type C:\jdk1.4\lib\tools.jar on value "depends where you install the jdk". I Hope This Helps.
