I've an applicattion running on Tomcat server.

When I call to the login.jsp page, sometimes I receive the page... but sometimes, I receive a blank page.

So, I have to close my browser or reload the page... but it doesn't solve my problem every time...

Does anybody know wich is the problem ???

Thanks !

Have you ever verified that, when this happens, there really isn't anything in the page? Have you used the browser's 'view source' feature to see if there is any HTML at all?

Often the JSP is working fine but an error in the HTML (an unescaped quote in some dynamic text, for instance) will prevent the page from rendering.

If the source is indeed blank, have you looked at the Tomcat logs to see if any exceptions are being thrown?
