Unable to find a javac compiler;

To be able to compile JSP pages you need an JDK (not JRE). On download page (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp) of Sun look for JDK 5 download.
Then install it and point JAVA_HOME variable to the root directpry of your installation.
For example you installed JDK to C:\jdk1.5.0 then you should set JAVA_HOME variable like that:
>set JAVA_HOME=c:\jdk1.5.0
or you can put it in catalina.bat file in TOMCAT_HOME/bin directory.
