ramazanyichCommented:
Did you provide correct JAVA_HOME varoable to startup.bat of Tomcat ?
It should point to JDK home (not to JRE home).
For example if you have installed JDK to c:\j2sdk1.4.2 then add following line to your Tomcat startup.bat (at the beginning of script):
set JAVA_HOME=c:\j2sdk1.4.2

Another solution is to put tools.jar from JDK_HOME/lib directory to $TOMCAT_HOME/lib directory
