Hi I am using Tomcat 5.0 and jdk1.4.2_05
When I am trying to run any JSP page the following error is coming ..

Can anybody provide any solution ?

Take a look at the log files under tomcat/logs.

You should see a full stack trace in one of them.
There are several reasons for this error.

It could be an error in your jsp code.
It could be that Tomcat can't find a javac compiler.
It could be a file permissions problem.

The error I mentioned is becaues of the Tomcat not being able find a javac compiler.

I have set the JAVA_HOME,CLASSPATH Properly.Even the examples provided by Tomcat are running fine .Any clue ?

The example JSPs that ship with Tomcat are pre-compiled so the fact that they're running is not proof that your JAVA_HOME environment variable is set properly.

Your CLASSPATH variable is not used by Tomcat.

How do you know your JAVA_HOME environment variable is working?
How have you tested it?
