    Tomcat jsp troubles

    Hi,

    I just installed Tomcat and everything seems to work fine (at least the jsp files) and now a customer asks me where he must put the JAR file and the libraries wich beats me since I don't have experience with JSP and Tomcat.

    Do you know where to put these files or where to find docs about this?

    The docs are available at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html

    the jar files go inside:

    There is a little more to supporting JSP than just installing Tomcat. Although a lot of hosts do seem to offer about that level of JSP support.

    Yes, Mark you are right.

    Java application servers do not work like plain perl or php

    I totally agree with you Mark.

    I see some host using the Cpanel Tomcat pluggin. Or they are totally irresponsible offering something that they don't know, or they don't have idea of what are they offering. It didn't surprise me either with all those $99 server guys around here.

    BTW, I'm not talking directly for you Domenico, but seems like you fit to this descriptions too.

    Jorge,

    There is nothing wrong with cPanel. But one must know the inside out of tomcat to successfuly run it on a cpanel server, as on any other server

    Another cPanel JSP host

    I ran Tomcat in several Cpanel servers.
    What I mean, its that a lot of people because they use the Cpanel plug think that they can offer JSP/Servlets support.
