    FreeBSD 4.2


    Can someone please explain what I need to do to get Tomcat working on my FreeBSD server?

    I have downloaded jakarta-tomcat, jakarta-ant, and jdk1.3.0_02. the jdk1.3.0_02 seems to be installed okay. I set the environment variables JAKARTA_HOME and JAVA_HOME (/usr/local/jdk1.3.0_02) as indicated and added $JAVA_HOME/bin to the PATH. When I try to build ant or tomcat, it complains that it cannot find libjava.so, but this is present in the /usr/local/jdk1.3.0_02/jre/lib/i386/ directory. I do not know where to look for the reference to it in the build process (it is not listed in the build.sh).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not familiar with Free BSD.

    There are a number of things you need to run Tomcat.

    Java compiler
    JSDK Latest version(check Javasoft)
    Correct Environemnt variables

    I set Tomcat up using

    TOMCAT_HOME to C:/tomcat (you have Jakarta_Home a typo? or is this for the BSD version)

    JAVA_HOME tp C:/pathto/jdk1.2.2/

    Hi,
    it seems that something fundamental with your JDK went wrong. Try to build a simple helloworld.java. I guess this will also fail. What jdk is installed? I think there are different BSD ports.
