Installing Tomcat with JRockit

If you can't seem to get Apache Tomcat to install on Windows using BEA's Jrockit Java virtual machine do this:
  • In the JDK's jre\bin folder there is another folder called jrockit; make a copy of that folder and call it "server" just for simplicity sake
  • Point the Tomcat installer to the JDK folder (not bin).
Note; this is just to get it installed – I haven't tried running it yet.

I couldn't find this information anywhere else on the Internet and found the answer in the Tomcat mailing list explaining the changes and actually looking through the install script (I think). If they simply added the directory /jrockit to the list of folders they check for jvm.dll there wouldn't be a problem.
