I am a student working on a project. I have created a new .jsp. It still says Hello World! I ran it to make sure everything works okay before I make changes to it and incorporate it into my project. I am getting an error 500 when I run it. Your help is very much appreciated.

I agree, one shouldn't normally delete files in the libraries, however, doing so in this case made mine work. I only deleted them after I compared the /ext folder against a second copy of the jre that I had made at the time of installation. (This jre is in no way connected to the netbean application) I saw the api.jar files were not in the original copy. I did not place the api.jar in the /ext folder, I don't know how they got there. Is it possible that netbeans creates these dynamically and puts them there?
