Deal all,
I've just installed Tomcat3.2.3. Everything works fine with Servlets. I'm now trying to do some JSP. Started with a very simple "Hello World" JSP file under
<Tomcat3.2.3 install_dir/webbapps/ROOT/hello.jsp>
When I try to access my JSP file from my browser, with the Tomcat server running, using http://localhost:8080/hello.jsp as the URL I get a message saying: Error accessing /hello.jsp
I'm running Tomcat3.2.3 on Win98/Java1.3.
Please help

Tomcat3.2.3 install_dir/webbapps/examples/jsp/<name of project dir>/hello.jsp

Hi Ambrose. Try to place your hello.jsp in the example folder i.e. c:\tomcat\webapps\examples and type in your URL
to check whether your tomcat is configured corectly is type in your URL http://localhost:8080/
then the Tomcat default home page (index.html) should display. If this page displays, there is no reason that your jsp file will not be displayed unless there is a compilation error. Good Luck, TED
I agree. Here's the link:
