    Compiling the Bank example source

    achasetsc Newbie

      I tried to compile the code as per instructions in section 4.1.2 (ant -f jboss-build.xml compile). Of course it failed as 99% of all examples do for newbies (so as to confuse us even further). But anyway, after stumble #1, I encountered an error with symbol:

      javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.SimpleTagSupport

      Now, of course most of you can sympathize and wonder "oh, what .jar file do I need to include now....KITCHENSINK.jar?". Figuring this out is a black art within itself. So, by powers of deductive reasoning and a bottle or two of Guinness, I found that SimpleTagSupport is a JSP and Tomcat 5.x thing, so I go in search of the servlet.jar(?), but low and behold, no SimpleTagSupport anywhere that I can find.

      Does anyone have any experience with this lib and what Jar it's in? Was there something in the instructions I missed and need to lay off the crack pipe or what?

      Regards,

      Allan

            After lobbing a 100 snowballs over my left shoulder, I was able to find:

            javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.SimpleTagSupport

            in the jar file:

            Tomcat_5.X/common/lib/jsp-api.jar

            Hope this helps someone.
