    JSP Compiler Errors

    Nathaniel Stoddard Newbie

      Hi folks -- I'm having a problem compiling some jsp files and I can't for the life of me figure out what the heck I need to do to make it work.

      The problem is that my jboss-jetty compiler won't compile my jsp file because it claims it can't resolve certain symbols. The sad thing is, it doesn't seem to resolve any symbols.

      I have my app all cooly ear'ed up with my war in there and all that stuff. It does deploy, and other parts of it work so that's not a problem. In the log file after it croaks trying to compile my jsp file, it does list the jar file I place in the WEB-INF/lib directory as well as alot of other stuff as being on the classpath when it tries to compile. But nada ....

      Oh, I've even tried compiling silly simple things. It refuses to find definitions for simple things like Hashtable and PrintWriter.

      So, please help :)

      To answer the inevitable newbie-esque targeted question, yes I do have the appropriate <jsp:declaration.page import="..."/> in my jsp file. Oh, and yes the java sdk (1.4.1 or whatever it is now) is on my path. I don't know if this matters, but I am doing this on a WinXP.

      Any help would be wonderful
