    Question Tomcat startup message

    Hi all,

    I'm new to Tomcat server... when I start it, I have the following message:

    sing CATALINA_BASE: /Applications/Servers/apache-tomcat-6.0.26
    Using CATALINA_HOME: /Applications/Servers/apache-tomcat-6.0.26
    Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /Applications/Servers/apache-tomcat-6.0.26/temp
    Using JRE_HOME: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Home
    Using CLASSPATH: /Applications/Servers/apache-tomcat-6.0.26/bin/bootstrap.jar

    Till now I'm doing small exercises, and everything is working. I'm just wondering why I don't have a "usual" message like the one here:

    Java Tips - Introduction to Java Servlets with Eclipse

    For instance, when I deploy a WAR, I don't see tomcat reacting on the terminal. In addition, the System.out.println in a servlet doesn't show anything on the tomcat console...

    I'm just wondering why!? Remark: I didn't set yet a JAVA_HOME variable... still, tomcat is working and the servlet as well.

    Thanks a lot!

    The reason it works without you having set the JAVA_HOME which is the development variable you should set is that its using the default JRE_HOME that gets set automatically when you install Java.

    Using JRE_HOME: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Home
    I'm not sure why you're not seeing any log output in your console though, I take it you are running Windows, how do you start your Tomcat server?

    Hey Json, thanks for your answer.

    Actually I'm using mac osx leopard.

    I saw a lot of stuff on the web about the classpath, the path, java_home, etc... I feel that these are specific to windows environment. Indeed I run a "hello world" without setting any environment variable.

    Regarding the log that doesn't appear... I'm still trying to understand. I guess it's not related to the java_home story...

    To answer your question, I run tomcat with the command ./startup.sh in the bin directory.

    Hope that you have an idea... if I find something I will post it here.

    I've never used Tomcat with mac osx before and I don't have access to one either so unfortunately this issue might be something you need to look elsewhere for a solution to.

    I have never come across the issue where tomcat does not log out to the console, but something that crosses my mind is that either the logging isn't set up properly hence the logging aint coming out in the console or there could be classpath issues but you'd have thought tomcat would spew some sort of error at you anyways then.

    Have you checked your logs/catalina.out file, does it contain the same information you already have?
