Hello,
I have installed Apache/1.3.24 and Tomcat/4.1.24 on Win2000 machine.

I created
C:\....\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\examples\jsp\num\pippo.jsp like this

<!-- PIPPO.JSP -->
<HTML>
<BODY>

<%out.println("HELLO WORLD!");%>

</BODY>
</HTML>

but when I run it, I get:


HTTP Status 500 -

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

type Exception report

message

description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null

Generated servlet error:
[javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting.
[javac] Compiling 1 source file
[javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting.


at org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.javacError(DefaultErrorHandler.java:130)

etc...

Also:
I tryed to rename an existing jsp like numguess.jsp into ciccio.jsp and I get the same error. This means it is not a matter of code error but it should be some tomcat/java configuration error.

Do you have any hint?
