    Default How to View a .jsp file with an internet browser

    I am a beginner Java programmer and I cannot figure out how to view a .jsp file with an internet browser. It is a simple .jsp file to display date and time. I have tried to get it to work in a number of different ways (XAMP, glassfish, and Tomcat by itself) but nothing will work. I am desperate and can move forward with the rest of my assignment until I figure this out.

    Default Re: How to View a .jsp file with an internet browser

    When you attempt to view the file, how do you attempt do so and what is the result? jsp is parsed by servers such as glassfish and tomcat, the result of which is sent to a client - similar to how a web browser (client) would view a file on a server. Did you try to load the file via a web browser?
