Subject Tomcat 6.0.35 NoClassDefFoundError on new .jsp
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2012 20:26:21 GMT
I have created a new .jsp.  It still says Hello World! I ran it to make
sure everything works okay before I make changes to it and incorporate it
into my project.  I am getting an error 500 when I run it.

More info:

HTTP Status 500 -

*type* Exception report


*description* *The server encountered an internal error () that prevented
it from fulfilling this request.*


javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

*root cause*

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/servlet/Servlet
	java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method)
	java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass($100($$ Method)

Lots more to this message if you need it.

Steps I have taken:
  Googled and found that not having javaee.jar in tomcat lib could
cause this problem.  Putting it in didn't fix it.
