Hi to all!
Yesterday I downloaded the new Tomncat 4 to replace my 3.23 version. I configured the Java_home as usual and now when I try to click on the jsp e.g numberguess and servlet links I get the error below. Why is this? Has anybody experienced the same error message? Help will be appreciated.
The error is...
A Servlet Exception Has Occurred
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP if (pageContext != null) pageContext.handlePageException(t);

On my Tomcat 4b6 you also have to set an environment variable for
CATALINA_HOME

Sorry William but this is the final release of Tomcat 4 and I'm running Windows 2000. Do I still need to set the environment variable for CATALINA_HOME?

Why would you think it wouldn't?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
