I am getting the following error ..
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP
E:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\work\Standalone\localhost\testapp\accounts\Test$ Class or interface declaration expected.
import javax.servlet.*;
E:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\work\Standalone\localhost\testapp\accounts\Test$ Superclass org.apache.jsp.HttpJspBase of class org.apache.jsp.Test$jsp not found.
public class Test$jsp extends HttpJspBase {

Can someone tell me where things are going wrong?
Thanks in advance..

do you have CATALINA_HOME set? Is servlet.jar appearing in your classpath somewhere? Is an older version of servlet.jar in there?
