Look at Tell the details

The more information you provide, the easier it is for people to answer your questions. Consider these examples:

* [not helpful] My program throws an error.
* [better] My program throws a NullPointerException on line 13. Below is the code and the stack trace.



Do you want to tell that you are getting this error for any JSP page? It sound like you have the permission issue. For example, you have installed Tomcat as one user and running as another. Do you work on Windows or Linux?

Have you changed any directory structure inside the Tomcat installation? (Though it should create the work dir etc.. even they are deleted)

Tomcat should be able to create the folders it uses for compiling JSP. My Tomcat 6 directory for those files goes:

(tomcat)-> work -> Catalina-> localhost -> _ -> org -> apache -> jsp (.class and .java files)

yes that is a directory named "_"

Also under the _ directory there are directories for examples, host manager, etc.

Does your tomcat have a "work" directory? Could there be some sort of security thing preventing the creation of these directories?
