I have a small problem.I was developing my application with tomcat 4 and j2sdk 1.4 and when i changed to tomcat 5.5 and jdk 1.5 because it isn't compiliant with j2dj1.4 there is nothing displayed and no errors either..
the apache page is displayed.but nothing else.even if i create a simple jsp page with nothing more than html nothing appears..

thnx in advance...

you need the tomcat 5.5 compatability pack go to: Tomcat 5.5 Compat
it will allow you to run jdk 1.4 stuff on tomcat 5.5, just get the zip and read the installation notes and everything inside
