Pick one JVM, you can't use all three (four) in one invocation. For Tomcat 6.0.37 that has to be Java 5.0 at a minimum. This gives you the choice of option 7 or 8. The 32 bit version (j9) runs better on V5R4 in most cases. On v5r4 there are many ways to set the version; and the version stated in the java command line itself takes precedence over anything set in JAVA_HOME or java.properties files. In your command line, you specify Java 6 (-Djava.version=1.6). You don't have Java 6 on your machine. The QSH java command works its way down through the selection precedence until it finds a JVM, the one it finds is the last one you specified in JAVA_HOME. The 32 bit version of Java 5.0 should be fine for Tomcat.

Most of the startup logging for Java and Tomcat goes to stdout. Stdout is an abstract file that is directed by the OS to an actual file. File in this case is in the unix sense, not the IBMi sense. QSH sets up stdout to go to a spool file (QPRINT) attached to the QSH job. (The job created when you first call QSH from the QCMD command line.) QSH handles translation from ASCII output to stdout into EBCDIC spool file content. Just display the QPRINT spool file to see your primary log.

As Tomcat starts to fire up, it creates catalina.out and begins to log there. This is another ascii stream file. Open it with Windows Notepad so you can read the ascii. EDTF should translate it for display if the code page is set properly. (I believe it is F15 that allows you to change the code page.)

I've never used the startup.sh script to start Tomcat; I've always called catalina.sh directly with the "start" option.

Subject: Problem with Tomcat on iSeries


i'm trying to install TOMCAT on iSeries but i have problems;

my scenario is :

* iSeries with V5R4 and

* 5722JV1 *BASE IBM Developer Kit per Java
5722JV1 5 Java Developer Kit 1.3
5722JV1 6 Java Developer Kit 1.4
5722JV1 7 Java Developer Kit 5.0
5722JV1 8 J2SE 5.0 32 bit

* Tomcat : apache-tomcat-6.0.37

i have installed Tomcat in a folder called TOMCAT and unzipped the file
apache-tomcat-6.0.37.zip in it; then i have modified catalina.sh adding this

export -s JAVA_HOME=/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14
export -s JAVA_HOME=/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/Java#VM/jdk50/32bit
export -s JAVA_OPTS="-Dos400.awt.native=true -Djava.awt.headless=true -
Djava.version=1.6 -Xms256m -Xmx512m"

and changed the row "os400=true"

now if i run from QSH the startup.sh i receive this:

/tomcat/bin/catalina.sh: 001-0019 Error found searching for command tty. No
such path or directory.
Using CATALINA_BASE: /tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/Java#VM/jdk50/32bit
Using CLASSPATH: /tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar

where could be the problem ? can some help me or suggest some link that
could help to solve this ?

thanks in advance

p.s. if i open the catalina.out i see strange charatters like ""-@aØÖ-
K%a£-"ƒ" is normal !!

this is the content of catalinaxxx.log

29-Gen-2014 11.32.52 org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol pause
