You should probably drop using JSWDK 1.0 and switch to the Tomcat project. Sun gave all the JSWDK code to the Apache organization for future development of the "reference" implementation of servlets and JSP over a year ago. Sun and IBM have engineers assigned to work on Tomcat - I don't think they support JSWDK at all.
The URL is:
Be sure you remove all JAR files that JSWDK installed before trying to run Tomcat - very confusing errors result if you mix them.
After installing Tomcat - make sure you can run the example servlets and JSP before trying to run your own.

before U set the working of the JSP as http://localhost:8080/myjsp.jsp
U need to do first setup the Javawebserver2.0 on your machine the installable is readily available on the sun site.
After installing that U proceed to place your jsp file in the public_html folder provided by the web-server.
Then if required U can set the server to a new port, but the default port happens to be 8080.
To access the admin functions use the URL http://localhost:9090/
U can then access using the login/password: admin/admin
To see your JSP page use http://localhost:8080/myjsp.jsp
and your jsp file will be hosted.
Hope this helps U out....

You need not use javaweb server for "testing" your servlets/jsp programs. jakarta-tomcat is more than sufficient.
I agree. Here's the link:
