Subject RE: Java Compiler Failing Without Reporting Error

You may try to compile manualy the .java file Tomcat generates in the work
directory. This may give you more information.

If the .java file exists, then it's the java compiler.

If it doesn't, it could be Jasper's failure.

Are you sure the user Tomcat is running as has write permissions to the work

Subject: Java Compiler Failing Without Reporting Error

Dear All,

Tomcat is functioning perfectly well with respect to Servlets, however, when
it come to compile a JSP page the javac compiler dies: without reporting an
error! The following generic stack trace is returned but it contains no
details as to why the compiler failed. If anyone at all has had this problem
and knows the fix could you email me ASAP. Please, I am desperate.
