This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Think Java: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and have Allen B. Downey & Chris Mayfield on-line! See this thread for details.
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. Bill
