I had problems getting tags to work in JB6 so with the help of
some good advise from several folks here at the ranch, I got it
saddled up.
Mind the fact that JBuilder worked "out-of-the-box" for standard
JSP/EJB and Servlets no problem (using TC3.2.x and JDK1.3.x) it choked
on tags and all that they had to offer.
Errors that I received were generally "cannot load class null or class
package.ClassName"


Configuring Jbuilder 6
Here's the steps that I went through to configure JBuilder 6 for use with
Tomcat 4.0.4 and JDK1.4.x
Step1:
Install the JDK1.4
Step2:
Install the lastest release of Tomcat4.0.x (4.0.4 at this writing). Make sure to
install it into a path that contains no spaces (i.e. "C:/apache/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4" also known as CATALINA_HOME), as JBuilder
docs say that "JB" won't work installed in a path with names...
Step3:
Configure TC for a "context" that you can work out of:
on my drive that's c:\work\test so the context tag to add to server.xml
is as follows:

Step 4:
Additionally, I added servlet.jar found in <CATALINA_HOME>/common/lib/ to my
CLASSPATH.
Step 5:
RE-BOOT - while this is not necessary, it gave me a chance to head to the privy.
Step 6:
Fire up JBuilder and click on the "project/default project properties" menu.
Navigate to the "Web Server" tab and choose Tomcat 4.0 from the drop down, click "Setup"
Step7:
Click the "elipses" and choose your TC installation directory root (i.e. "C:/apache/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4"),
make sure that "%CATALINA_HOME%/bin/bootstrap.jar" is listed in the "classes" pain (that's pane - if not choose it).
Step 8:
Under tools / IDE Options menu, choose "Web". Make sure that "Copy web run/debug..." is checked and that
"Use web view on running..." is selected.
Step 9:
Create a new project that has a class, jsp, tld in it. Test it from the web run - mine worked.
