Hi,

I'm upgrading my webapp to use Servlet 2.4 specs and JSP 2.0. I'm able to compile my servlets, but when I try going to a JSP page, I get the following error:



This is my JSP page, which was ok using JSP 1.2:

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



Does it?

JAVA_HOME is set to C:\j2sdk1.4.2_12

Is this not correct? Should it point to the bin directory?

This looks more like a configuration issue than a problem with a specific version of any spec.

Which container are you using?

Just in case, try setting tools.jar in your classpath.

That will not be necessary and will be ignored by the container.

Can you see any of the example apps that come with Tomcat?

Yes, I can see all of the examples for both Servlets and JSP that were included with Tomcat.

How have you set up your folder structure for the web app? The context entry?

I've placed my JSP files inside the root of my application. So it's Tomcat5.0/webapps/myapplication. This has always worked in the past, should they be placed elsewhere now?

I just noticed that during installation, Tomcat asked for the location of my JVM and I put the path to my JDK... should it point to something else? I'm not clear on this. Maybe this is why my JSP files don't work?
