Causes for Blank page?

My servlet is running, and not producing a page, just a blank screen. Im using JRUN and nothing is being logged to stdout.log.
(I had a test print mesg for when it starts)
I checked this site for a reason, and found that it could be from using instance variables inside my doPost. I am only using local variables.
Any suggestions?

Well, a blank screen is better than a 404 or 500 error so you are getting somewhere. What I would do first is "view source" to see what is actually being returned to your web browser.

A blank screen may be due to some exception which is caught by your code, but NO ACTION for that catch. In other words,
