I'm trying to make a call to application.getRealPath() on a WAS server that appears to be running JSP 0.91, and failing miserably. The same code works fine on a Tomcat 5 server running JSP 1.2. The error messages seem to be indicating that the application implicit object is undefined. Were implicit objects available in 0.91? If not, does anyone have a suggestion as to how I might acquire the real path of a file under 0.91? TIA.
AFAIK, this was not supported in JSP 0.91. I just did a quick search of the JSP 0.91 spec and could not even find a reference to implicit objects -- I think this was actually first introduced in JSP 1.0. BTW, though, if you're running on a version of WAS that supports 0.91, either you're using WAS 3.5, which also supported JSP 1.0 through a switch, or your running WAS 3.0. In any case both products have gone out of service, so I'd advocate upgrading as soon as possible. Kyle
