    Which version of Tomcat / JspC and NullPointerException

    Howard Lewis Ship Newbie

      I'm attempting to precompile my JSPs for use with Tomcat.

      We're using JBoss 3.2.2.

      From peeking around CVS, I believe that JBoss 3.2.2 packages up Tomcat 4.1.27.

      However, my ant task fails:

      generate-jsp-helper:
      [echo] Precompiling JSPs for cairo-admin ...
      [echo] build.generate.web.dir = C:\workspace\Cairo\source\cairoadmin\build\web
      [echo] build.generate.jsp.dir = C:\workspace\Cairo\source\cairoadmin\build\generate\org\apache\jsp
      [jasperc] 2003-12-19 11:34:24 - ERROR-the file '\tiles\aaa.jsp' generated the following general exception: java.lang.N
      ullPointerException
      [jasperc] error:org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Error compiling \tiles\aaa.jsp
      [jasperc] at org.apache.jasper.JspC.processFile(JspC.java:596)
      [jasperc] at org.apache.jasper.JspC.execute(JspC.java:801)
      [jasperc] at org.apache.jasper.JspC.main(JspC.java:823)

      I've been experimenting, to determine the cause of this error. It has something to do with the use of a custom JSP tag library.

      I'm trying to figure out something about the code that's failing inside JspC.

      The line numbers don't match up against JspC.java 1.15
      (from cvs.apache.org:/home/cvs/public/jakarta-tomcat-4.0\jasper\src\share\org\apache\jasper\JspC.java)

      Is there some hidden, patched version of JspC as part of JBoss? Where's the source?
