I've finally been able to narrow down this problem. It appears that it occurs 
ONLY when the classes are in the Java classpath, and NOT (as in most cases) in 
the WEB-INF/classes directory. I'll attach a new ZIP in a minute.

Meanwhile, I've also migrated to Tomcat 5.5.17, but the problem remains.

Just unpack the zip (mytest2.zip) into your tomcat/webapps directory. The 
index.jsp will now compile fine, just to prove it actually works :-)

Now, here we go:
- Stop Tomcat
- Rename the mytest/WEB-INF/classes dir to mytest/WEB-INF/klasses .
  This will prevent Tomcat from picking it up.
- Now add the mytest/WEB-INF/klasses dir to the Java classpath. My new 
classpath then is:
  C:\Program Files\Tomcat5.5\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\Program Files\Tomcat5.5
\webapps\mytest\WEB-INF\klasses
- Restart Tomcat
- Make sure you "touch" index.jsp to force re-compilation.
- Visit index.jsp

et voila... there you have it:

> gui.editor cannot be resolved to a type

When I then (keep Tomcat running) delete the WEB-INF/klasses/gui/Editor.class 
file, and re-visit the index.jsp, it suddenly compiles!

Go figure :-)

My environment:
Windows XP Pro SP2 + all patches
Java 1.5.0_04
Tomcat 5.5.16 + 5.5.17

Hope this helps to finally locate this bug. Would help me a lot. I've already 
got many applications out in the field using these classes, so renaming them is 
not really an option :-(

Thanx!
Paul Hamer
