Can you please advise . This JSP works in weblogc 8 . but does not work in weblogic 10

Root cause of ServletException.
weblogic.servlet.jsp.CompilationException: Failed to compile JSP /login.jsp
login.jsp:7:3: No start tag found.

here is the complete jsp..

<jsp:forward page="/servlet/vpn?inf_action=login&inf_template=/common/home.jsp" />

I am not exactly a JSP guy ... but i just wanted to find out the reason for my information ..

you are declaring an empty tag, the syntax can be either of the two

<tag /> or <tag></tag>

but not

<tag /></tag>

this is what raises the exception

"psreddy psreddy", please check your private messages for an important administrative matter.

Also, please be sure to ask Weblogic questions in the Weblogic forum. I have moved this post there for you.
