did you import the proper packages into the JSP?

Subject: need help on jsp issue under Tomcat 5.5.17

Hi there,

I recently downloaded and installed Tomcat 5.5.17 on my Windows XP machine,
and did some basical tests. It turns out that the it has problems executing
jsp files with the vrey basic functions. For example, I have a very simple
jsp file as follows:


<%@ page import = "java.util.Date" %>
time : <%= System.currentTimeMillis() %>
Request URI: <%= request.getRequestURI() %>
date : <%= new java.util.Date() %>

The file test.jsp is located under %CATALINA_HOME%/webapps/test

When I load in the jsp file(http://localhost:8080/test/test.jsp) in Tomcat ,
it shows the following result:

Request URI

It seems that Tomcat does not execute the embedded jsp codes, and I cannot
find any error messages in the log file.

In addition, I have verified :
- CLASSPATH setting is correct, which contains the dt.jar/tools.jar from JDK
1.5 and jsp-api.jar/servlet-api.jar from Tomcat.
- I can run servelt/html file without any problem under Tomcat
- I can run the JSP example installed with Tomcat without any problem
- I tried to copy the test.jsp into the directory of installed JSP examples
of Tomcat and reload the jsp file, and it shows the same issue.

Could you please shed some light on this?

Thanks a lot in advance!
