I am new to web development and Tomcat. I have just finished an intermediate Java course and want to explore web development.

I am using a Windows 2000 desktop computer to install Tomcat 4.1.24. I could not understand the following in the document to install Tomcat:

1. Set an environment variable JAVA_HOME to the pathname of the directory into which you installed the JDK release.
2. Execute the shell command %CATALINA_HOME% instartup

Please help to explain what exactly do I have to do.

1. Set an environment variable JAVA_HOME to the pathname of the directory into which you installed the JDK release.

Prerequisite is that you have installed a JDK. So you have to set an environment variable (e.g. as system variable - I hope I translate the strings right from German to English):


  1. Start | Properties | System Properties

  2. System

  3. Extended

  4. Environment variables

  5. New (System variables section)

  6. Name=JAVA_HOME Value=... (where your JDK is installed)





2. Execute the shell command %CATALINA_HOME%instartup

  1. Start | Execute

  2. cmd

  3. cd (... tomcat home ...)

  4. cd bin

  5. startup


But there should be an entry in Start | Programs | Apache Tomcat.
