Subject JSP Compiler error messages lower quality in Tomcat 5.5?
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2006 18:19:13 GMT
The quality of the JSP compiler error messages for Tomcat 5 seems much worse than those for
Tomcat
4.  The difference makes debugging much harder under the Tomcat 5.5 releases.  Is there a
way to
build Tomcat with different components to have it provide better compiler error messages?

As an example, this JSP code snippet:

errMsg = "Uploaded file has no readable records or is empty.");

generates this compiler error message in Tomcat 5.5.12:
--------------------------------------------------------
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: 7 in the jsp file: /adminArea/UploadFile.jsp
Generated servlet error:
Syntax error on token ")", delete this token
------------------------------------------------------------

However, the same file under Tomcat 4.1.24 generates this compiler error message:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Generated servlet error:
    [javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting.
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file
    [javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting.
    [javac]
D:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24\work\Standalone\localhost\_\adminArea\UploadFile_jsp.java:1998: ';'
expected
    [javac] 				errMsg = "Uploaded file has no readable records or is empty.");
    [javac]                                                                              
        
                   ^
    [javac] 1 error
