    I have a customer who wants to use JSP on his account. I enabled servlets for him, but the page wants to download rather than display. His page is name

    library.jsp

    This is the content of the page.

    <%@ include file="path.jsp" %>
    <%@ include file="xml.jsp" %>
    <%
    xslt(basepath + "xml/mylibrary.xml", basepath + "xml/library.xsl", response, out);
    %>

    I told him he could use JSP with the understanding that I know nothing about JSP and my support would be minimal. But, I do need to know that JSP is, at least, working. Any comments?

    JSP works fine IF Tomcat is installed properly. I would check your tomcat setup and verify that servlet and jsp support have been added to his account through WHM.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I did a re-install of Tomcat (4.1), and I did not get any error messages. I also installed servlets on the customer's domain. I have also heard that .jsp pages have to be chmod executable on a linux server, so I did this.

    Now, I get a "JSP generated" 404 page saying that the .jsp page I am calling cannot be found. However, it is there.

    I am somewhat encourage that at least the JSP server is serving its own 404 page eventhough I dont know why it says it cant find the page, which is there.

    Try this code.

    <%@ page session="true" language="java" isThreadSafe="true"
    import="javax.servlet.*,
    java.io.*,
    java.sql.*,
    java.util.Date.*"
    %>
    <%= new java.util.Date() %>


    Call it test.jsp and see what happens. Make sure ownership of file is correct. Also jsp's do NOT need to be executable to be used, chmod 644 is enough.

    Does the tomcat server scan for new libraries when added?
