How to start and stop Tomcat..

I just installed and configured tomcat.

Question: How can I start and stop it?

The book I was reading says to run using:

C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0-b5/bin/startup.bat                                   <-- old version, from the book
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 7.0     <-- new version I just installed

even under C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 7.0/bin there is no startup.bat

If I figure this out then stopping it will be easy too.

Thank you

Eghtebas,

I think it's permission problem for the following URL that you refered:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/J2EE/JSP/Q_27647430.html

However, do you have the same problem?? If you use Vista or Win7 then right click on that and try 'Run as Administrator' or change permission settings.
