Hi
I have just started working on jsp pages. how do I compile my jsp page and view it.Using tomcat server. I know tomcat has jasper compiler to compile jsps. do I have to set any class path for this to use the compiler?
so please tell me how to compile and run a jsp page.

Thanks in advance.

As this is a Tomcat setup issue, moving to the Tomcat forum.

You only need to put jsp in Tomcat app (example webapp for example) and run it from browser, Tomcat will compile it.

Thanks bruce for ur reply.
But its not working that way.. I have a html page that calls this jsp page.. I can see the values (entered in html) in the url after submitting the page but these values r not being displayed in jsp page..
using request.getParamter()to retrieve values from previous page and displaying.

any ideas?

what do you see in the address bar? (copy and paste it into your message, the entire thing)

what is your JSP code ?

The first part of your address bar:
file:///C:/

is a problem. It means the browser is not actually submitting to the JSP page.

Also, where is the question mark that separates the page name from the querystring?

showmail.jspfname
should be
showmail.jsp?fname
