can't get my init script working


i made a script 'tomcat' in /etc/init.d/tomcat

#!/bin/sh
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/
CLASSPATH=/usr/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.31/common/lib/servlet.jar
CATALINA_HOME=/usr/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.31
export JAVA_HOME
export CLASSPATH
export CATALINA_HOME
.$CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh

Is the script executable? What happens if you run the script from the command line?

If you in /root.bashrc, it will be only for root user.
Try putting on /etc/profile

A small point, may be worth looking into. Is the init run level in 5?

putting the env. lines in etc/profile worked
but now startup.sh isnt getting run as $CATALINA_HOME/.../startup.sh or /fullpath/startup.sh or 'sh /fullpath/startup.sh/

and it is in runlevel 5
