Partner Portal exception at login

I'm getting a NullPointerException when attempting to login.

Did the installation by the books. Runing JDK 5, Tomcat 5.5.

From the error log:

2005-10-13 18:10:01,072 [http-10080-Processor25] ERROR SforceManager - java.lang.NullPointerException

any ideas?

The portal requires JDK 1.4.x and Tomcat 5.0.x.

Please respond with the documentation that indicates otherwise and we will fix it.

Unfortunately I don't get to pick the versions in this case. Can the portal be made to work with newer versions?
So there are a couple of dependencies to use JDK 1.5. The following blog post should give you an idea of what would need to be done to make any sforce project work on JDK 1.5, including the portal.

Recently Apache released Axis 1.3. You should consider using it over 1.2 but will need to make the same adjustments to the portal code per the above blog post. The following post will help you get Axis 1.3 working with the best performance:
