I know the reason instead of
catch (Throwable t) {
out = _jspx_out;
if (out != null && out.getBufferSize() != 0)
out.clearBuffer();
if (pageContext != null) pageContext.handlePageException(t);
}
It should be catch(Exception t) then it will work fine.
I'm making changes in the "D:\Tomcat 4.1\work\Standalone\localhost\examples\jsp\num\numguess_jsp.java" after that it should
work fine but later on starting tomcat i'm finding it that it is overwritting my changes
Any workaround for this problem?
Infact the very first JSP-index.jsp was also not working so made the above corrections-changed Throwable to Exception and it started working.

Does your JAVA_HOME variable point to a 1.3.1 JDK or a 1.4 JDK ? With the LE ('light edition') of Tomcat, is requires 1.4

Hi,
It points to 1.4. It's only the sampel JSPs and other JSPs that are not running. Servlets are running fine.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
