Okay this under WindowsXP Professional.
1) Okay I have installed J2SE 1.4 from sun.com
2) Set JAVA_HOME env variable to the directory that the above was installed into.
3) Then also downloaded and installed Tomcat 4.0.3. from sun/apache.
If i goto http://localhost:8080/
in Internet Explorer then I get the Tomcat welcome page appear. On the left of the welcome page is a menu containing some links to some examples.
If i Follow the 'Servlets Examples' link and execute a couple of the example servlets they all seem to work fine.
HOWEVER if I follow the 'JSP Examples' link and try executing any of the examples or any other JSP page for that matter I get a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error.
Whats wrong with my Tomcat (its a fresh install) why will it serve servlets but not JSP pages corectly.
