exception

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

No Java compiler was found to compile the generated source for the JSP.
This can usually be solved by copying manually $JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar from the JDK
to the common/lib directory of the Tomcat server, followed by a Tomcat restart.
If using an alternate Java compiler, please check its installation and access path.

org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.javacError(DefaultErrorHandler.java:128)
org.apache.jasper.compiler.ErrorDispatcher.javacError(ErrorDispatcher.java:348)
org.apache.jasper.compiler.Compiler.generateClass(Compiler.java:415)
org.apache.jasper.compiler.Compiler.compile(Compiler.java:455)
org.apache.jasper.compiler.Compiler.compile(Compiler.java:439)

org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.service(JspServlet.java:240)

note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Tomcat logs.

So when you did that, what happened?
Which Java SDK are you using? Can you run other Java programs? Which Tomcat are you using? Can you see the Tomcat start page?
