Problems with JSP compilation on AIX 5.3 and IBM J9 JVM
We are running Sun Application Server v9.1.02 on AIX 5.3 using the IBM 32-bit J9 JDK 5 version. The application server is coming up and running fine.
When we deploy an app that contains JSPs and we attempt to hit a URL that runs a JSP we get an HTTP 500 error from the server that contains the following messages
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: PWC6033: Unable to compile class for JSP
We have looked at the server log files and the message basically shows that the Jasper JSP compiler inside of SAS/Glassfish is failing.
We have created a simple WAR file that contains a basic Hello World JSP (and nothing else) and the problem occurs there as well. So, we believe we have eliminated our application as a source of the problem.
As best as we can tell the server is reading our JSP file, it is generating a Java source file and then is failing when it tries to compile the code.
Note: The server instance is running under a non-root account.
