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 -->

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


but when I run it, I get:

HTTP Status 500 -


type Exception report


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


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)


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?
