i have made the following jsp page
<jsp:directive.page import="java.sql.*" />
<jsp:scriptlet>
try {
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcracleci:@xe","hr","hr");
Statement stmnt = con.createStatement();
ResultSet rs=stmnt.executeQuery("select * from countries");
rs.first();
String country = rs.getString("COUNTRY_NAME");
statement.close();
connection.close();
}
catch (Exception E) {out.println(E.getmessage());}
</jsp:scriptlet>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>
</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
</BODY>
BUT THE BROWSER from tomcat RETURNS THE FOLLOWING ERROR

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP:

An error occurred at line: 2 in the jsp file: /connection.jsp

1: <jsp:directive.page import="java.sql.*" />
2: <jsp:scriptlet>
3: try {
4: Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");

Why are you using the JSP XML document format in your JSP?

The JSP document format is not suitable for hand coding. It is primarily intended for the container to use as an intermediary representation of a page, or for when JSP pages are autogenerated from code where a DOM can be built and serialized.

I'd strongly suggest just using the "normal" JSP syntax. Trying to use the document sytnax will just yield a frustrating series of errors trying to get the very strict markup just right.

You'll need to find a good book or tutorial on JSP. One that covers JSP 2.0.

You should probably also read this article to make sure you understand what JSP is fomr the start.
