I'm getting a ClassNotFoundException caused by JasperException:unable to load class for JSP. I don't understand the basis of the error though.

The JSP uses a tag to retrieve info from a data object. The data object is built from accessing my DB. The problem is that apparently I'm missing a piece of data in my DB and so when I do the call on the object, it can't find the value in the object and so it returns a canned "***objectName***" string to the JSP.

Why would database issues cause this error? Thoughts? Is there a way to get better error logging details from Tomcat in regards to this error and the real problem?

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

If the offending class is not in a package, that might be the cause.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
