HI all,
I am using Tomcat 5.5.23 & jre 1.5.0. I am able to start the tomcat server properly & am also able to access the tomcat home page using http://localhost:8080 . But when I execute any of the JSP examples which are given on homepage it gives the following error,:-

type Exception report

message

description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.PageContext.getVariableResolver()Ljavax/servlet/jsp/el/VariableResolver;
org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.doHandlePageException(PageContextImpl.java:846)

Is this a fresh install?
Have you brought in any jar files that might conflict with Tomcat's; either in your app or in the tomcat/common/lib directory?

Did you put a j2ee.jar in your JDK's directory anywhere?

yes this is a fresh install, & from the beginning itself i started getting error. I have following jar files in my lib folder:-
commons-el.jar
jasper-compiler.jar
jasper-compiler-jdt.jar
jasper-runtime.jar
jsp-api.jar
naming-factory.jar
naming-factory-dbcp.jar
naming-resources.jar
servlet-api.jar

I first thought servlet.jar file might be missing thats why added it in lib folder but still its giving me the same error
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
