try

<html>
<head><title> JSP Test </title></head>
<body bgcolor = "#FDF5E6">
<H1>JSP Test </H1>
Time: <% = new java.util.Date().toString()%>
</body>
</html>

util.Date is depreciated class though but I think you main purpose is not the class but the concept of how jsp prints a server out put...

Hi ....

TO  Kuldeepchaturvedi:
   I tried ur code, but then I got an empty page ... blank ...

TO objects:
   I tried ur code, ... I still do not see the time :(

It seems that I must have some other mistakes in my system ... is that possible that because I didn't start the server properly ? or it doesn't matter ? thanks ..

Please help ... thanks !

try restarting your server and loading the code I posted with the following added to top of page:
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html" %>
What server are you using?

That all looks ok, arew u sure you requesting the jsp from your j2ee server, and not a web server.

err .... I am not sure actually! This might be the problem.....

After I have the "a cup of coffee" icon on my status bar ......
I just double clicked the file "Hello_new3.jsp" directly ..... then I saw the file .... but I am not sure whether it is started from the j2ee server or a webserver ... how do I check this ?
Thanks !!!

> I just double clicked the file "Hello_new3.jsp" directly

thats your problem, you need to request the file from the j2ee server:

eg. http://localhost:8000/test.jsp

you need to put in whatever directory your j2ee server stores its jsp files.

didn't u say in your other q that you could already load jsp's from your j2ee server?
If this is the case then you just need to find what directory those jsp's are in.
