Hi All,
I am developing a web application using JavaBeans (MailBean.java) inside a JSP Page with Apache Tomcat/4.1.18-LE-jdk14 and J2sdk1.4 and i keep on having the error "Unable to compile class for JSP" see full error msg below.
Meanwhile My catalina_home directory is d:\Tomcat and it has no \lib subdirectory rather there is a \common\lib directory
However, My JSP code and JavaBean file (MailBean.java) are all stored in my subdirectory called \kenTest which is in the directory d:\Tomcat\webapps\ROOT directory, and I am using the ROOT context

HTTP Status 500 -
type Exception report

See the discussion in the JSP forum. Posting the same question in multiple forums AND sending me email produces confusion and irritation.
