Tomcat9 refuses to start

Hi,

tried getting it to work via the method described in the tomcat page on the wiki. Installed tomcat9 from official repos, defined the needed users in the tomcat-users.xml
Refuses to start when trying to enable via

sudo systemctl start tomcat9

i get:

Subject: A start job for unit tomcat9.service has finished successfully
░░ Defined-By: systemd
░░ Support: https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel
░░

running openjdk-14 and the file is present. tried it with openjdk-11, problem persists. also tried directly calling /usr/lib/jvm/java-14-openjdk: same.
any idea?

Re: Tomcat9 refuses to start

I found the problem to be somewhere with jsvc.

jsvc --help

gives me an error along the lines of "no java found".
I then found out, that my

$JAVA_HOME

is empty.
after

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime

tomcat worked. once

I'm now back to the error from the first codeblock when trying to start tomcat service although $JAVA_HOME is set, and running jsvc directly also seems to find java.
strange behavoir.
