I have downloaded the JDK 5.0 Update 6 without netbeans and installed it to <c:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06> on(xp home).java -version works in comm.

I have set JAVA_HOME to the java installation dir <C:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06> and added bin to the path <C:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06\bin>.

I have also downloaded and installed apache-tomcat-5.5.15 to
<c:\tomcat5.5.> Tomcat has found the puplic jre at
<C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\client\jvm.dll> & java classpath <C:\Tomcat 5.5\bin\bootstrap.jar>

in the browser the url http://localhost:8080/index.jsp, serves the tomcat welcom page, but if I try to access any jsp examples I get:

HTTP Status 404 - /jsp-examples/

type Status report

message /jsp-examples/

description The requested resource (/jsp-examples/) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.15

I have also tried copying the tools.jar from the sdk lib to tomcat common/lib and set CATALINA_HOME to <c:\tomcat5.5>

can anyone help?

We have a Tomcat forum that you will probably find more helpful in this situation. I'll move this post for you...
