Hi, I am new to JSP and am trying to learn how to get it setup and runnning with tomcat.

When I try to run load a simple jsp page from localhost I the error:

"unable to find a javac compiler;
com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK"

I searched around and people say to copy the tools.jar to
file to %JAVA_HOMElib, but I looked and I only have a tools.pack file not a tools.jar file. Is there someway to upack it in windows?

But do you have the Java JDK installed on your computer? If so, you have to define an environment variable (right click on My Computer->Properties->Advanced->Environment Variables) named JAVA_HOME pointing to the directory you have the JDK installed. Maybe you have it, but it cannot contain spaces (like in c:Program FilesJava), so you'll need to go to a console and make a dir /x to see the "DOS name" of the directory.
