Hi !
I have an updated SuSE 10.0 Novell DVD installation.
I have checked TODAY for last updates, a i'm up2date
I'm trying to use Tomcat5.
tomcat is using:

rpm -qf /usr/lib/jvm/java/bin/java

At first, I had this problem about a .pid file.
I added this to the /etc/sysconfig/j2ee
export CATALINA_PID="/var/run/tomcat/"

and Tomcat5 started succesfully, but ...
now i go to http://localhost:8080 and my browser doesn't display anything at

Weird thing ... if i type this command as ROOT:

/usr/lib/jvm/java/bin/java -Djava.endorsed.dirs=
-classpath /usr/lib/jvm/java/lib/tools.jar:/usr/share/tomcat5/bin/bootstrap.jar:/usr/share/tomcat5/bin/commons-logging-api.jar::/usr/share/java/mx4j/mx4j-jmx.jar
-Dcatalina.base=/usr/share/tomcat5 -Dcatalina.home=/usr/share/tomcat5
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start

everything is OK and my browser display tomcat welcome page.

The weird thing is that i took this command from a:

ps aux | grep tomcat

when tomcat5 is "running"

If i run the same command as TOMCAT user, it doesn't display anything.

Do you think it's a simple matter of file owners ?

What would you think the diference is between my long command line and do a
"rctomcat5 start" ???

Thank you !
David Salgado
