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
