pls ranchers I,m new to jsp technology and having problems deploying this page
here is the code I'm using J2EE 1.4
<%--Import the Java packages --&>
<% @ page language="java"%>
<% @ page import="java.lang.*"%>
<font size=4 face="Verdana" color=#112244>
String str =request.getParameter("r1");
String str1 =request.getParameter("t1");
String str2 =request.getParameter("t2");
String final_output="";
int num1=0;
int num2=0;
int num3=0;
num1 = Integer.parseInt(str1);
num2 = Integer.parseInt(str2);
<%-- Displaying the option selected --%>
The selected mathematical function by you is : <%=final_output%>
Integer in=new Integer(num3);
out.println("The Result is " + in.toString());
and here is the html file to access it
<h2>Mathematical Functions</h2>
<font size=4 face="Verdana" color=#112244>
<form method="post" action="Calculate.jsp">
<input type="radio" name="r1" value="add" checked="false">Addition
<input type="radio" name="r1" value="sub" checked="false">Subtraction
<input type="radio" name="r1" value="mul" checked="false">Multiplication
Enter two numbers:
<input type="text" name="t1" value="">
<input type="text" name="t2" value="">
<input type="Submit" name="b1">
after deployment I get this error from the server
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

No Java compiler was found to compile the generated source for the JSP.
This can usually be solved by copying manually $JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar from the JDK
to the common/lib directory of the Tomcat server, followed by a Tomcat restart.
If using an alternate Java compiler, please check its installation and access path.
pls how can I sort it out

I think Tomcat is the reference server that comes with J2EE, so you might actually be using it. Try to find the directories mentioned, and see if the file in question is where the message says it should be.

If you're new to JSP, you might have an easier time if you just download and install an instance of Tomcat.
Most of the books and tutorials I've seen use it to run their examples.

With Tomcat, you don't need j2ee. It ships with the components it needs.
Just having a j2se is sufficient.

I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
