Hi

I have downloaded the JDK 5.0 Update 6 without netbeans and installed it to <c:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06> on(xp home).java -version works in comm.

I have set JAVA_HOME to the java installation dir <C:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06> and added bin to the path <C:\programfiles\java\jdk1.5.0_06\bin>.

I have also downloaded and installed apache-tomcat-5.5.15 to
<c:\tomcat5.5.> Tomcat has found the puplic jre at
<C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\client\jvm.dll> & java classpath <C:\Tomcat 5.5\bin\bootstrap.jar>

in the browser the url http://localhost:8080/index.jsp, serves the tomcat welcom page, but if I try to access any jsp examples I get:

HTTP Status 404 - /jsp-examples/

type Status report

message /jsp-examples/

description The requested resource (/jsp-examples/) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.15

I have also tried copying the tools.jar from the sdk lib to tomcat common/lib and set CATALINA_HOME to <c:\tomcat5.5>

can anyone help?

We have a Tomcat forum that you will probably find more helpful in this situation. I'll move this post for you...

That is not good - Tomcat should be reporting that it found the JDK path. The JRE path does not contain tools.jar so it can't compile JSP.
You should not have to do any copying of JDK files to tomcat directories, it should work "out of the box" if JAVA_HOME is correct.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
