hi guys,

I am trying to execute the first example given in our very own "HFSJ" book regarding JSP.

Problem Description:

Java file:


complies with out any issues

and the jsp file



When trying to access the jsp file, it is showing an error page with the below message

type Exception report

message

description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP:

An error occurred at line: 5 in the jsp file: /BasicCounter.jsp
Counter cannot be resolved
2: <body>
3: The page count is:
4: <%
5: out.println(Counter.getCount());
6: %>
7: </body>
8: </html>


Stacktrace:
org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.javacError(DefaultErrorHandler.java:92)

org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.service(JspServlet.java:267)
javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:717)


Software Details:

Server - Apache Tomcat Ver 6
JDK - 1.5

What could be the possible reason for this?

Did you restart the Server after the changes to the class file? You could try that.

Not sure if this is the issue but change your ” characters to quotation characters i.e "
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
