Tomcat 4.1 JSP Problem

Hi guys, well you see I'm trying to crete a new Web app and my Tomcat instead of displaying my JSP files, it downloads them

this is what I did:

I created the context /Myapp and created the directory with the name Myapp on the Tomcat\webapps directory
under that i created a folder called WEB-INF and in there a web.xml file wich contains only the servlet mapping
of my app. Under WEB-INF I created a folder called classes and under that folder I created the whole path of my
package (com.victor.intranet) and left there my servlets.

     The thing is that my servlets work fine, I accessed them directly and the input was the one I was expecting
the thing is that when I access http://localhost/Myapp the index.jsp file instead of executing it, it's trying to download it.

     I've asked arround what could this be, because I've never had that problem.. and the only thing they tell me is "Weird.. It shouldn't do that"

     I hope you can help me..

    Oh, btw, I'm using w2k  :)

     Thanks..

can you post your index.jsp code? If it is very large just let me know.

Is the behaviour the same for all JSPs?

Do you get any errors/exceptions reported?

What does your localhost_access log file show?

Well.. actually I just solved this "Mistery"
this is what happened..

I checked the Index.jsp file.. and it was all weird characters..
I don't know what happened or why but well.. so I deleted the file
and created a new one.. turned off and on the Tomcat server
and the same error keep apearing.. until..
I checked my try..catch block and..
it all was o.k.. it was a out.println("message");
but.. I just put that into a comment and.. voila.. it worked..
it's very weird.. but.. thanks.. now my jsp are working..

Thanks anyway guys... :D
