Please show what's in your "jsps" directory, and how you're trying to access the file.

Add a directory named "WEB-INF" to your "jsps" directory and Tomcat will recognize it as a webapp.

If you're new to JSP and servlets, I recommend that you pickup a book and read up on some of the basics. It will save you a lot of time and aggravation.

Once Tomcat recognizes your webapp and tries to invoke your JSP, this line will blow up for you.

The JSP expression tag expects a String or an expression that returns a string.
