Does Tomcat start and you see this message on the browser or is this an error seen on the console?

Sounds like you may not have it in the right place. Can you show your directory structure for your project?

Yes Tomcat had been started and the error is shown on the console

The JSp file is placed in the WebContent Folder of the Dynamic web project in eclipse.

Do you get any more information? Is there a stack trace in the console window or the Tomcat logfiles? It may contain a more detailed exception message that should give you an idea of what's wrong with your JSP.

Yes the error shown includes :

Root cause of error:
Unable to find a javac compiler;
com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK

No idea what to do???

What is on your build path? Can you create a standard java app in Eclipse and run it? If so, your JDK is set up but everything you need for web stuff may not be in the build path of your web-app. Try looking through your 'Configure build path' options and make sure you have what you need.

If you don't see a problem show us the directory structure of your project.
