Subject RE: TC 5.5 - 4 issues (jasper, ROOT, jndi, logging)

No, I just removed the imports from my JSP that it was complaining about and it went away.
Would you like me to put them back in and then look at the generated source for you?

I don't and I have not. This error occurred with an out of the box server.xml with _no_ Context
elements. All I did was have ROOT and my own webapp in the webapps folder and then add mywebapp.xml
into the conf/C/l/ folder. I think the clash came because my webapp using a path of "" which
seems to be what ROOT tries to do also. Just removing ROOT from webapps sorts this out.

Is there anything I can do to get Resources working in the meantime again or shall I wait
for the next TC 5.5 release.

No idea :) Like I say I have not touched the server.xml _one bit_ after installation. All
I did was add my webapp into webapps and put its config file which just defines jndi resources
into conf/C/l.

I'm going to try adding, STDOUT

into my webapp log4j and see what that does but first I need my webapp to work :)

If I can be of any help please let me know what you want me to find out..
