          There are a couple of usual suspects for this problem. You can check these first and if they aren't the problem, it might help to show your bootstrap environment (part of the console output from JBoss that shows the CLASSPATH, JBOSS_HOME and so on).

          This is Tomcat Jasper (JSP compiler) complaining that it cannot generate a class from the JSP source. One thing people have reported is that having the installation in a path with spaces causes problems for the compiler launch parameters. The second problem is that JAVA_HOME is not defined properly. The system needs to have the classpath to include the tools.jar from your installed JDK - so classes can be compiled. This is determined by taking JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar. So JAVA_HOME should be defined for the root directory of your JDK. e.g. C:\j2sdk1.4.2\.

          As a tip, don't install your Java distribution or JBoss in directory paths that contains spaces. This seems to break all sorts of things as Java was not designed with this convention in mind.

          Anyway, hope that gets you a start. Otherwise give us some more information on your install and the environment variables JBoss reports.

            jonlee .. thank you ..
            I setup the java_home to j2sdk1.4.1_03 which is what had downloaded .. instead I originally had set it to j2sdk1.4.1 ..
