I'm trying to run the sample Guestbook from sun's tutorial entitled;
History of a Servlet, but to no avail. I'm getting a 500 Error which is
either a communication or compiler problem. Tomcat331 is configured correctly. The error does not yield a line-number and the compiled options are default.

try logging. J2SE 1.4 has a logging api package java.util.logging. Use this to find the error.
I agree. Here's the link:
