Subject RE: Compiling JSP's under Solaris
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2001 13:54:45 GMT
Using Tomcat version 3.2.1.
Have tried all methods of influencing classpath and writing it out, am being
told that tools.jar is included but still no compilation.
Is the classpath given to SunJavaCompiler.class that makes the call?

When you mention tools.jar is in the classpath, are we talking of you
setting in within the shell script that launches tomcat or the enviornment
(aka shell) which you invoke the script from. Looking at the shell script
that starts up tomcat (tc4) it appears that it doesn't adopt the classpath
within the shell that invoked it. Why don't you put some debug statements
inside this script which tell you exactly what classpath it's using?

Subject: Compiling JSP's under Solaris 

I've developed a fairly large JSP based application which runs nicely on 
windows NT, but due to spec of machines performance is slow. So moved 
application to Sun Sparc running Solaris 2.5. JSP compilation fails with 
noClassDef looking for despite tools.jar being in the 
classpath. I've been trying hacks of startup/, building my own 
'java' command, using different versions of JDK (1.2.2,1.3) all to no avail.

What am I doing wrong? Should tomcat operate as a standalone servlet 
container in the environment I describe? Please help, I'm losing hope, 
sanity and temperance...
