I have installed Tomcat 4.1.24 on my Linux box. I have JDK1.2.2 installed with the JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME variables setup.. I have JAVA_HOME/bin in my PATH. I can start and stop tomcat fine, but when I try to run the test page(or any JSP) I keep getting this annoying compilation error..

Does anybody know how to solve this? Thanks

In spite of the fact that the docs say Tomcat 1.4 works with SDK 1.2, I don't think it does.
I just spent a week trying to help a guy get it running on Win98 and never managed it.
Bite the bullet and install SDK 1.4 -or- back up to Tomcat 3 is my advice.

Thanks for the reply. I haven't had any luck with TOmcat. I kept JDK 1.2.2 and tried running TOm 3.3.1a and I had even worse luck. The next thing I will try is upgrading my JDK and keeping TOm 4.1.24. Will let you know how goes! ANy other people experience this problem. Those of you who have tomcat working, what versions of JDK and Tomcat do you have?

Looks like you are right. Once I upgraded my J2SE to 1.4.2, everything was solved. I never saw this in any of their installation docs though. Thanks.
