My First JSP Page - hello.jsp

This section provides a tutorial example on how to create the first JSP page with JSP code to test the JSP support of the Tomcat Web server.

The next thing I need to test is to create Web page with JSP (JavaServer Page) codes.

1. Create a text file called hello.jsp with the following JSP code:

<% out.println("Hello world! -- From JSP"); %>

2. Save this JSP file to the default application folder:


3. Run a Web browser with this URL: http://localhost:8080/hello.jsp. You should see the "Hello world! -- From JSP" message in the browser:

Apache Tomcat - Hello JSP Page
Apache Tomcat - Hello JSP Page

Congratulations again! Now, we have confirmed that Tomcat server is running as a Web server that supports JSP pages:
