Hi
I am begginer to jsp
I have downloaded apache-tomcat-7.0.19-windows-x86,unzipped it,

Added an environmental variable JRE_HOME
and it's value is C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_22

I have started tomcat from startup batch file , a console window appeared for a while then disappeared .

when open my browser internet explorer and write address

http://localhost:8080/ then press forward button

I get
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
No

What you can try:
It appears you are connected to the Internet, but you might want to try to reconnect to the Internet.


Retype the address.


Go back to the previous page.


Most likely causes:
•You are not connected to the Internet.
•The website is encountering problems.
•There might be a typing error in the address.


More information


what is the problem please.

For once use JDK instead of JRE, secondly check actual error in logs in "log" folder
