I have installed Apache-Tomcat 6. When I execute the startup batch, all is well, up to a certain point (shows Java as icon on system tray and netstat shows port 8080 is listening). But fails to display page when I enter http//www.localhost:8080
in I.E. - says it can not display page.
HOWEVER, I think I need to install it as a service. Or at least I think so.
As I understand it, it has a service batch file in its \bin directory . And as I understand it, I need to set the variables:
"JAVA_HOME" (required) and the JRE_HOME (optional) paths.
Do I understand that this service batch will create Tomcat as a Window Service? If so, afterwards, I would need to ensure it entered as a service and set to automatically execute.
Is this correct? Will this correct it not displaying in I.E.
Any tips? Thank you.
