Re: JSP Newbie seeking guidance

Not at all, Justin. Thank you, thank you!

Also, thank you, Mark Eggers.

As I am so new to this, I run the risk of veering off-topic, which I realize
is inappropriate. That said, I will get my newbie noggin back into the
woodshed so that I may be true to this list.

Best wishes,
John G.

JSP Newbie seeking guidance

2005-10-10 Thread John Geiger
Hello:

This is a little intimidating, but I am eager. I hope I am in the right
place.

I am a DHTML developer‹intermediate level. I¹ve been exposed to JSP on an
iPlanet server, Sun OS 5.8 (but it is my client¹s production server, and I¹m
reluctant to mess around there!)

I now have my own Tomcat install kind-of-working on a Fedora Core 2 box. It
is Tomcat 5.0.x with Apache 1.3.

I am studying an APress book called ³JSP 2.0 Novice to Professional,² but
get errors with some of the exercises. (The book is great! Makes it sound so
easy ;-)

My main question is: Can someone recommend a proven Linux, Apache 2 Tomcat
5.5 combination‹could be unix, too.

I figure I should set up a stable development rig first‹one that I could
eventually rely on in a light production environment.

Also: I am interested in finding a tutor/mentor in the San Francisco Bay
Area.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
John G.

I am avoiding the real issue--OK, I am ready to face it:

javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspTagException: In
lt;drivergt;, invalid driver class name:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

This is the error I get running an exercise from the Apress book. I can not
seem to find my way using Google.

I think maybe MySQL is not installed--or I am missing an important
file...somewhere!

Eeek. Thanks.

 Besides the other answers you will get, I would think you would want to
 run Tomcat standalone (i.e., have it process HTML pages as well), and
 not bother with connecting it to the Apache web server.  You are just
 learning about JSP right now; not hosting web applications, so Apache is
 probably an unnecessary distraction at this time.
