When I typed ./startup.sh i am getting:

Using CATALINA_BASE:   /home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_05/bin/java
Using CLASSPATH:       /home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56/bin/bootstrap.jar:/home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56/bin/tomcat-juli.jar
/home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56/bin/catalina.sh: line 319: /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_05/bin/java/bin/java: No such file or directory
/home/ashok/apache-tomcat-7.0.56/bin/catalina.sh: line 319: exec: /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_05/bin/java/bin/java: cannot execute: No such file or directory

Its clearly saying that. Try to understand the error message. The JRE_HOME should be /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_05/ not /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_05/bin/java


Please add to your /etc/profile:

export JAVA_HOME=$(readlink -f /usr/bin/java | sed "s:bin/java::")

Login and logout for it to take effect.

The advantage of this is that you do not have to update it everytime you update your Java.
