Hi all,

I've just started using Resin and it's fantastic, but I'm having a bit of trouble with something that should be very simple. I have the following in a file in resin-3.0.9\webapps\jsptest\hello.jsp :

Hello World!

In resin-3.0.9\webapps\jsptest\WEB-INF\web.xml I have the following :

<web-app>
<servlet servlet-name="jsppage"
servlet-class="hello">
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping url-pattern="/hello"
servlet-name="jsppage"/>
</web-app>

However, the problem is, when I type the URL http://localhost:8080/jsptest/hello I get the following

error from Resin :

500 Servlet Exception
WEB-INF/web.xml:4: `hello' is not a known servlet. Servlets belong
in the classpath, often in WEB-INF/classes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Resin-3.0.s041002 (built Sat, 02 Oct 2004 04:47:31 PDT)

I just don't get it. When I delete my web.xml file and try the URL http://localhost:8080/jsptest/hello.jsp it works fine. I have tried to manually compile the .jsp file but to no avail. I just want to be able to have a mapping between a URL and a .jsp file. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong? When hello.jsp is compiled by Resin, I am assuming it is compiled to hello.class, as specified in my servlet-class="hello". I think this might be the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hugh,

Try something along these lines. First you specify the servlet-name to JSP page mappping, in this case from 'test' to test.jsp.

Then you map the url pattern to the servlet defined in the first mapping, which effectively maps the url pattern to the JSP page.

That did the trick exactly, thanks a million Sonny. I didn't realise I had to specify jsp-file instead of servlet-class.

Since this turned out not to be Resin-specific, I have modified the topic title accordingly.
 
Thanks tiny ad, for helping me escape the terrible comfort of this chair.
