how Tomcat needs package name in front of the class after import?

Dear experts,

I move my application from my machine to production server running tomcat3.1 and found some codes are not working any more.

I am getting this error:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSPNote: sun.tools.javac.Main has been deprecated.
E:\apps\tomcat\work\localhost_8080%2Fpolym\_0002falign_0002dresult_00033_0002ejspalign_0002dresult3_jsp_0.java:89: Class Hashtable not found.
                      Hashtable ad = (Hashtable)request.getAttribute("disclist");


If I add package name in front of the Hashtable, it will work. So, why the import statement not working?

<%@ page
import="java.util.*"
import="java.io.*"
import="java.lang.Math"
errorPage="ExceptionHandler.jsp"
%>

Thanks. Is this a Tomcat 3 problem?

I'm not 100% certain, but I think your page directives should be more like this:

<%@ page import="java.util.*, import="java.io.*, import="java.lang.Math" %>
<%@ errorPage="ExceptionHandler.jsp" %>

Thanks. One thing I don't understand is the same codes work fine on my own machine...only the Tomcat version is different.

The jsp specification didn't say that you can specify multiple import attribute in one page directive. so it is just that the newer version is more tolerant to your mistake.

both of below compliant to jsp spec:

<%@ page import="java.util.*, import="java.io.*, import="java.lang.Math" %>

-- or --

<%@ page import="java.util.*"  %>
<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.lang.Math" %>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Aha!  Thanks kennethxu.  I though it might be something like that, but I haven't used anything earlier than Tomcat 4, so it would only have been a guess if I had posted that ;-)

changcy77, split the points - 20 each - I might have provided a solution, but kennethxu actually explained it ;-)

sorry, both of your answer did not work...

for <%@ page import="java.util.*, import="java.io.*, import="java.lang.Math" %>
error messages are :
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: /login.jsp(4,0) Unterminated <%@ page tag
      at org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.jspError(DefaultErrorHandler.java:94)
      at org.apache.jasper.compiler.ErrorDispatcher.dispatch(ErrorDispatcher.java:428)
      at org.apache.jasper.compiler.ErrorDispatcher.jspError(ErrorDispatcher.java:170)
      at org.apache.jasper.compiler.

****************************************************
for <%@ page import="java.util.*"  %>
<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>

error message is

login.jsp shouldn't be in E:\  It should be in the webapps\polym directory along with your other JSPs.

my bad, didn't check exactly
>> <%@ page import="java.util.*, import="java.io.*, import="java.lang.Math" %>
this is incorrect and it should be:
<%@ page import="java.util.*, java.io.*, java.lang.Math" %>

if you still have problem, post your code and we'll fix it for you.

I have just tested on Tomcat 3.2 and 3.3 ( don't have 3.1 on hand) both import works!

<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.*" %>
<%=new Date() %><p>
<%=new IOException( "works?" )%>

-- or --

<%@ page import="java.io.*, java.util.*" %>
<%=new Date() %><p>
<%=new IOException( "works?" )%>
