I am using jakarta tomcat 4.1
I installed it. I set ENVIRONMENT variables
CATALINA_HOME = c:\jakarta_tomcat_4.1.30
JAVA_HOME= c:\j2sdk_1.4\bin
When i start tomcat, it gives me this error:
The input line is too long.
The syntax of the command is incorrect.
Any idea about this???
Then I removed the environment variable & put these 2 in startup.bat
Still it gave me the same errors. If anyone has worked on it, pl. give me a solution to start it.

    Accepted Solution

    this happens when u exceed the limit for the number of characters for the environment variables on Windows.
    Do you have a long list for you CLASSPATH/PATH. try removing some of those and restart

    Also another note: JAVA_HOME variable shouldn't point to bin directory of your JDK installation. It should be root directory of your JDK installation. In your case it is:
    set JAVA_HOME=c:\j2sdk_1.4
