Hi

How do you setup a CLASSPATH in Linux.I am trying to load Tomcat 4 on linux and requires me to copy some files to my class path.

Please help

When you start tomcat with ./startup.sh, it invoces a series of other scripts. Among them there is a setclasspath.sh that sets the standard CLASSPATH="$JAVA_HOME"/lib/tools.jar. Then catalina.sh change it to a more complex one. Check these scripts to find where you have to copy your files.
Regards

Did you install tomcat? If yes then CATALINA_HOME=/path/to/tomcat (where /path/to/tomcat is the directory where tomcat is installed). You set this variable with:
Code:
export CATALINA_HOME=/path/to/tomcat
To start tomcat you must also
Code:
export JAVA_HOME=/path/to/java
Then the startup script (/path/to/tomcat/bin/startup.sh) run all the scripts needed to set the environment for tomcat to start. Among them is the CLASSPATH variable
