Description Tom Uijldert 2008-12-09 00:33:16 UTC
The text in RUNNING.txt on multiple instances suggests that one can supply an option "-Dcatalina.base" with the startup command.

This is not the case for "startup.sh" nor for "catalina.sh".
CATALINA_BASE needs to be defined in $CATALINA_HOME/bin/setenv.sh in order for this to work.

Please modify the text in RUNNING.txt accordingly or modify "catalina.sh" to also accept this "-D..." -option.

Thanks in advance,

NB: Also noted the same issue in 5.5
