Hi all
I am getting java.lang.VerifyError and Illegal target of jump or branch,I think there is no problem with the code,we are using jboss3.0.0 as the application server and tomcat4.0 is the JSP Engine.Anybody come accross this type of error!

It sounds like the compilation of your JSP created illegal code for some reason. Have you suceeded in running JSP with this combination before? Is this perhaps a VERY LARGE jsp? Maybe there is a method too large to create a valid jump.
