Hi!

I have a JSP page which generates a java file. This java file contains the code for an applet. I have been using java to compile the .java file itself by this code:





But now I would like to compile my .java file through my JSP page itself. I tried to import tools and use javac but it did not work...

Thanks!

Charles,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

I don't follow your question. It sounds like you are asking how you would stick the code you already have in a JSP. (Which would be poor practice, but the answer would be copy/paste.) I think you are asking something else though.

Also, note I added code tags to your post to make it easier to read.

Thanks for your reply,

The server generates an applet code which does not do the same thing each time. This means that my .java file(which contains the applet) is different each time. How to compile this file on the server? I tried this code below but it did not work even though I imported what was needed. I get an error saying that it could not compile.

Where did you see the error message and exactly what did it say.

I put tools.jar in my build path in order to use javac and the error(HTTP Status 500) is:

com.sun.tools package is not standardized and is meant for internal usage only.

What version of java are you using ? If you are using Java 6 , have a look at the new compiler api.

I tried the codes in the link but it did not work. I wrote a .bat file and it solved my problem.

Thanks anyway!
