Apache Tomcat fails to start from Netbeans


Log Message:

‘’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

The solution is taken from Stack Overflow with thanks to Sudeepta

I have faced the exact problem in apache-tomcat-7.0.56 and apache-tomcat-8.0.14 with netbeans7.4 and netbeans8. I installed tomcat from zip file. I fixed it by changing catalina.bat file in tomcat bin directory.

Find the bellow configuration in your catalina.bat file.



Just remove the double quotes



Now save and start your tomcat from NetBeans. It works for me in apache-tomcat-7.0.56 and apache-tomcat-8.0.14.
