I have a script that is a basic JSP file. It doesn't work, though. Here it is:

Is there something special I have to do in order for that to actually execute and do something?

Simple question....

Where do you run it (app server)? You should use Java J2EE app server such as Tomcat to run JSP

Tomcat is installed on the server. I just don't know how to get that script to use Tomcat instead of just showing text.

Did you deploy it to Tomcat? You should create a web application (WAR) file and put it in your TOMCAT_HOME/webapps?

Nevermind, the webhost told me the problem. Using the IP address to access the domain doesn't call Tomcat. The domain name is registered as a link to Tomcat and all JSP files will be sent to it, but only when I use the domain.
