    But I have looked at these methods an could not find any problems.
    The most interesting is that some of those methods are used by other applications and work pretty well.

    There are a lot of lines where you (or your former colleage) forgot to end his/her lines with "';". This meistake can cause both the "';' expected" and the "illegal start of expression" compiler errors. The compiler tells you exactly where these things are forgotten. If you're new to Java then get a good book on it and/or read some tutorials to get familiarised with the language.

    Good luck.

    Actually i became a lot familiar, since working for 2 months

    the method is written without errors I can give the source
    public String getDescr(String Description)
    {

    if (Description != null)
    {
    while (Description.indexOf('\n') != -1)
    {
    Description = Description.substring(0,Description.indexOf('\n')) + Description.substring(Description.indexOf('\n')+1,Description.length());
    }


    while (Description.indexOf('\r') != -1)
    {
    Description = Description.substring(0,Description.indexOf('\r')) + Description.substring(Description.indexOf('\r')+1,Description.length());
    }


    while (Description.indexOf("<") != -1)
    {
    if (Description.indexOf(">") != -1)
    Description = Description.substring(0,Description.indexOf("<")) + Description.substring(Description.indexOf(">")+1,Description.length());
    else
    {
    Description = Description.substring(0,Description.indexOf("<")) + "&lt;" + Description.substring(Description.indexOf("<")+1,Description.length());
    }
    }

    while (Description.indexOf(">") != -1)
    {
    Description = Description.substring(0,Description.indexOf(">")) + "&gt;" + Description.substring(Description.indexOf(">")+1,Description.length());
    }

    return Description;
    }
    else
    return "";

    }
    Also the method is located in JSP filev which is requested I don't where yet!

    Ok, that method looks ok, but the compiler is complaining about some other code. Not the code you just posted.

    Tokenizer makes me..

    I have solved that problem, now another error

    jrun.jsp.parser.TokenMgrError: (9,5) Unable to scan the character '/' which follows ''

    what does that mean? is '/' character given to be tokenized?

    for example the symols '\' and '|' are in one button(with shift)
    so is it possible that someone mistyped in the database and the tokenizer is getting stupid when retrieving data from the daytabase?

    I never used jrun.jsp.parser, but it sounds quite straight forward: it can't scan / if " is followed. This happens at line 9, column 5 (I think).
    Maybe this link is helpfull to you: http://livedocs.macromedia.com/coldf...FML/Debug7.htm

    Good luck.
