Tomcat4.1.18 with jdk1.4.1_02 problem

Hi Ranchers,
In reply to my earlier post many had replied that Tomcat4.1.x works well with jdk1.4.x and there is no compatibility problem. Some have been using the combination since months.
I tried this today but on trying a jsp page in my application I get the following error message:

I earlier thought that the error might be due to some JRE version conflict since I had both jdk1.3 and this particular version of jdk installed on my XP machine. So I uninstalled the jsdk as well as JRE for jdk1.3, restarted my machine but alas the same error persists. Please note that the Tomcat server starts and runs well.
Any clues??
Thanks & Regards,

The error means that you are trying to run some code compiled with a newer java version then the one using now.

which path is in your JAVA_HOME

Hi all of u!
I am having the same problem with jdk1.4.1_01 and Tomcat4.1.18
Are they both really not compatible? Do i have to download jdk1.3?
I tried all possible ways of starting the server but looks like no use.
I hit this page somewhere on the net.
Do i need to do everything that's written on this page? I mean like changing the server.xml and web.xml files?
I really need help. Can anyone help me here?
Thanks in Advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
