Ok, I did a little digging, and I think your problem is that the html:link tag requires some parameters exist in the request object that are put there by your servlet. Since you accessed this jsp directly with out going through the servlet (I'm assuming that your servlet isn't set up to process .jsp request) the link tag crashes.
I think your options are to either create your link with out the html tag, or to set up a dummy action who's form and action class don't do anything and then forward to the jsp.
