I'm teaching myself JSP, and in trying to run a jsp from a book I'm reading I consistently get a "Page cannot be found" error in MIE.
I'm running Tomcat 3.2.2 on an Apache server, on a Linux box. I know the file is where I think I said it is. Here's my code:
<html>
<head>
<title>Read a File</title>
</head>
<body>
<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
<pre>
<%
File fileObject = new File("c:\\java\\test.txt");
FileReader fileRead = new FileReader( fileObject );
BufferedReader buffFileIn = new BufferedReader( fileRead );
String line = "";
while( ( line = buffFileIn.readline() ) != null )out.println( line + "<br>" );
fileRead.close();
%>
</pre>
</body>
</html>
I'm guessing I've made some sort of syntax error. I'm trying to get a file from my computer (a Windows machine, not the same machine as the Linux machine on which Tomcat and Apache are running). Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? My other jsp's work just fine.
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

Check the tomcat logs. A 404-style page-not-found message would mean that you misspelled or miscapitalized the jsp's name. A 500-style message would mean that the jsp could not compile or abnormally terminated.

I'm getting a 404 message. The problem is, I'm selecting the JSP from a directory that lists the file. Also, when I introduce a deliberate error into the JSP (I commented out the line defining fileObject), I get an ordinary error message. So the file is being looked at somehow. I just don't know what's going on here.
