I have started working with OpenTripPlanner (I am developing a journey planner app). I am following the two & five minute tutorial given on OpenTripPlanner website. But while starting the server using "bin\start-server.bat" it's giving me errors which are shown in picture. I also tried to google for error messages but didn't find any fair solution. C:\apache-tomcat-7.0.33\otp\bin>start-server

  • lib folder exists in otp directory as bin – Khayam Gondal Dec 7 '12 at 19:58

    Does it work if you run the java -jar lib\winstone from the otp directory, instead of the otp\bin directory? – BradHards Dec 7 '12 at 22:42

    Those two lines that start with # are comment lines in the script you copied this from. You aren't meant to run those. – BradHards Dec 7 '12 at 22:44
