Bug 44955

Summary: Winodws Service endorsed directory
Product: Tomcat 6 Reporter: Bruce Carson <bruce.carson>
Component: Native:IntegrationAssignee: Tomcat Developers Mailing List <dev>
Severity: normal    
Priority: P2    
Version: 6.0.13   
Target Milestone: default   
Hardware: PC   
OS: Windows Server 2003   

Description Bruce Carson 2008-05-08 12:59:10 UTC
When installing Tomcat6 using the Windows Installer,  the  Java Options are setup to define the endorsed   ir  as  -Djava.endorsed.dirs=${catalina.home}\common\endorsed    However, if using the   service.bat   it sets this  to  -Djava.endorsed.dirs=${catalina.home}\endorsed

The latter is the way the DOC  describes the location of the endorsed dirs.
I think the windows installer   is Incorrect.   I can go back in and change the Registry  but is very distruptive and confusing  and causes   deployment problems
