Generator causer Error500 NullPointerException

X-Application Version: 3.1.3,
Tamino Version : 3.1.1
Platform :Win2k, WebContainer : Tomcat 3.3
JDK Version : 1.4

Trying to generate a application I get this errormessage(-> below);
The Konsole tells me, that tomcat(Path:G:\Programme\xapplication_313\tomcat3) home was not found; File: xapplication.properties contains tomcat.home=tomcat3;
calling http://localhost:8080/xapp is mapped to http://localhost:8080/xapp/index.html.
thanks in advance

Hi,

you have set a wrong tomcat path in your xapplication.properties.
Instead of a relative path use an absolut path.

CAUTION: slashes and colons have to be escaped, i.e. you have to use ‘\’ and ':'

For your path G:\Programme\xapplication_313\tomcat3 you will have to set
the tomcat home variable to:
tomcat.home=G:\Programme\xapplication_313\tomcat3.

Bye
Thorsten
