I am trying to display JSP's on my local machine. Here is what I have done:
1. Downloaded and installed the JSWDK in directory C:\JSWDK
2. Added the following to my classpath
C:\jdk1.3\lib\tools.jar;
C:\JSWDK\jswdk-1.0.1\lib\jspengine.jar;
C:\JSWDK\jswdk-1.0.1\lib\servlet.jar
3. I put a JSP named Hello.jsp in the \examples\jsp directory
4. I start the server using the startserver.bat file
5. Open IE
6. Type in http://localhost:8080/examples/jsp/Hello.jsp
I get a 404 Error: Page not found
I have tried to display some of the JSP's that come with the examples, but no luck.
Can anyone help?
Thanks,
Frank

I don't know what the specific problem with your example is, but the general answer is usually that JSWDK is now obsolete and unsupported, and you would probably be much better off spending your time getting used to a modern Servlet/JSP container such as the reference implementation Tomcat from http://jakarta.apache.org/ or my personal favourite Resin from http://www.caucho.com/ .
