 Raju -

i wanna to work a Jsp and j2ee project with sqlserver 2005

i installed Apache tomcat server 6.0 in windows xp.
when I am trying to start the service from controlpanel->services.. it says

windows could not strat the apache tomcat on local computer. for more information, review the
System event log. If this is a notn-microsoft service,contact the service vendor, and refer to
service-specific error code 0.

can anyone say what is the problem and how can I solve it?

thank you

go to your tomcat installed folder like in my case

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\bin
Right click on the tomcat6w.exe select open the go to Java tab
point the java virtual machine to correct version of jvm.dll in my case C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_07\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll
start tomact it will run properly

the error might be because of user installing new version of java
Thank you
