Subject newbie looking for guidance
Date Tue, 21 Jul 2009 00:58:54 GMT
Hello All,

	I'm a web developer making the jump from PHP to java.  I'm taking over a project created
by a contractor no longer employed by my division.  I've been tasked with fixing a couple
of minor issues that never got fixed before he left.

	I'm using NetBeans and tomcat 6.0.16.  I'm under the understanding that our production server
is actually running tomcat 5.5.x but I couldn't get NetBeans to even set that as the server
for the project.  When I run the installer for tomcat everything works fine. But once I deploy
the application the home page and manager pages no longer display properly.  There are problems
with the bundled examples too.  The servlets work properly but the jsp examples throw an AbstractMethodError:.
 The NetBeans project and the server are both set to use Java  

Here is the full text from the exception block:
avax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.AbstractMethodError: javax.servlet.jsp.JspFactory.getJspApplicationContext(Ljavax/servlet/ServletContext;)Ljavax/servlet/jsp/JspApplicationContext;

Here is the stack trace from one of the examples:
java.lang.AbstractMethodError: javax.servlet.jsp.JspFactory.getJspApplicationContext(Ljavax/servlet/ServletContext;)Ljavax/servlet/jsp/JspApplicationContext;

I've tried a web search but to no affect.

Please let me know if I should be posting this somewhere else.  I've looked online and keep
seeing references to CLASSPATH, but I don't think it's my problem but I'm not sure how to

Any help would be much appreciated.

Tom Burton
