Tomcat 5 with Apache


Hi Guys,

I know this has been discussed but I searched and cannot find the problem that I am experiencing. Ok, I just want to serve .jsp pages and that's it. So my understanding is that I can use tomcat to hook to apache and the way to do that is to use mod_jk. I have:

apache 1.3.26 (work fine)
java 1.4.2_05 (work fine)
tomcat 5.0.28-src (broken)

I've read that you can start the service after unpacking. I ran it like so:
/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/jakarta-tomcat-catalina/catalina/src/bin/startup.sh which shows:

Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src/temp
Using JAVA_HOME: /usr/local/java

Looks good right? no...I check the logs and I see for catalina.out:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/catalina/startup/Bootstrap

What does this mean? I've looked on google and haven't found an answer. My environments are:

CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28-src
ANT_HOME=/usr/local/apache-ant-1.6.2
CLASSPATH=$ANT_HOME:$CATALINA_HOME:$JAVA_HOME:$TOMCAT_HOME
JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java
PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games:$JAVA_HOME/bin:/usr/local/apache-ant-1.6.2/bin"

I am so clueless at this point. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

It looks like you may have downloaded the source code instead of the binary that you may want... you might try again using the tomcat binary instead of the source...

Hi,

Yes, the binary version is a lot easier I must admit for tomcat. Tomcat works off the bat which is great but trying to get mod_jk to work....now that's a headache. I have downloaded the mod_jk.deb (forgot the actual filename...i can get that to you if you need) and installing it went well but when I try to serve .jsp pages from apache I see the jsp code which is not what I want. Hmm, is mod_jk that difficult to get it to work with apache?

Well, there's plenty of HOW-TOs out on the web for all sorts distros, versions of tomcat and apache...
I've posted a few times on this subject but you may be better off googling to find something specifically suited to your install...
