plz help.. ! is my JSP dead??

Hi e'body..
i'm getting sick of my problem.. can anybody give me an idea on what's happening..
I'm using VisualAge for java( a failure), as a testing tool..
maybe the JSP engine in VAJ is dead !!!
Till now,.. i have done quite a number of servlet/JSP(S) on my present project..
and in my new JSP, it just gives horrible error reports..
look at this:
(1)
<TD align="left" ><%= session.getAttribute("fullname") %></TD>
// from the compiled .java source
// ##DEBUG## C:\updatedtimes.jsp 44,39-C:\updatedtimes.jsp 44,73
out.print( session.getAttribute("fullname") );
it gives an error here as : Invalid escape character ( location of error is the space bar )
(2)
<TD align="left" ><%= session.getAttribute("startTime")%>
same error reporting... the location of error is ')'
there are a lot of such errors..
Everywhere in my JSP, i put an expression
<%= expression %> it gives an error saying INVALID escape character...
Whats going on???
I guess the problem is with the JSP engine in VAJ..!!!
Do you have any idea, why this is happening..
It would be Great, if anybody can help me on this..
Thanks a lot

Try deleting the compiled jsp or reverting it back to a previous version that did compile. As you may have noticed, sometimes VAJ gets confused. It can't compile a new JSP because it is stuck on the old problems. This will not affect your real JSP.

Hey Jeanne ,
Thanks a lot.. for your reply..
I somehow,solved my problem.. i did try deleting the already compiled JSP.. deploying again-n-again ... neither worked... then i was thinking what to do..??
u know what solved the problem..?? hehe....
I just copied (crtl-C ) the same code and pasted into another JSP ( Ctrl-V ) and i made the correction in forwarding to this new JSP.. and there u go.. it worked... !!
I dunno why it was initially giving the problem..
but solved it this way..
Thanks, anyway
