Tomcat 4.1 error: package org.apache.runtime.Jasper does not exist

Abstract: Tomcat 4.1 error: package org.apache.runtime.Jasper does not exist

Question:

My Web App was working fine, but then I changed something and now, Tomcat throws an internal error:

package org.apache.runtime.Jasper does not exist

Is there a workaround for this problem?

Answer:

Try creating a new Web Module (WAR), and then in step 1 of 3, choose "Copy a Web Module from a directory or archive," and point to the old Web Module directory. Continue with the wizard choosing options that correspond to the requirements of your old Web Module. Once the Web Module is created and compiled, try running the new Web App against Tomcat and verify that the issue is resolved.
