Hi everyone I am new to this forum. I am new to JSP and i downloaded Eclipse 3.1.1. and installed tomacat 5.0.28. I also downloaded tomcat plugin 3.1.0 and unzipped it into plugins folder of eclipse. i even set the tomcat home path in eclipse.
i cretaed a tomcat project and created a jsp file and started tomcat. i tried to acces the jsp page but i am not able to get it
please could somebody guide me getting jsp pages working in eclipse 3.1.1
You need to make sure the JSP file in your project directory is deployed to the Tomcat server, either directly by having them be the same directory, or indirectly by copying the JSP. I'm not sure how well that plugin handles application deployment or even if it handles it at all.
I would also try some 'HelloWorld' styled JSP pages for Tomcat until you have a feel for the server's root directories.
You really can't run them inside eclipse, you can merely have eclipse open a simple web browser to where they are running on the server. I don't know of any offline JSP programs, and I'm not sure many exist.
