Launching Tomcat

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I must launch 2 instances of tomcat on a server and with the same user. I'm trying to set differents CATALINA_BASE when launching tomcat but this environment variable is not used. That is the commands I use: base0=/home/$INT/inst0 base1=/home/$INT/inst1 #... su $INT -c "CATALINA_BASE=$base0;$cathome/bin/startup.sh" su $INT -c "CATALINA_BASE=$base1;$cathome/bin/startup.sh" and that is what I see in the console: Using CATALINA_BASE: /home/mci2/tomcat Using CATALINA_HOME: /home/mci2/tomcat Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /home/mci2/tomcat/temp The catalina_home is ok but not the catalina_b (HowTos)
