You might try changing the fork parameter to false in your web.xml file
-- later versions of Tomcat on the iSeries don't like the default. Here
is what it looks like:

We've just installed Tomcat on our new iSeries 810 in a ifs directory,
and I'm getting these strange page compile errors. The weird thing is
you get the error on the first two hits on the page and on the third
attempt it finally compiles.

I've been using tomcat on Linux machines for the past couple of years
and never ran into this error before. I'm sure it's a setup thing so
maybe someone can help me out.

To set this up I did the following:
  1..    Uploaded the tomcat zip file to the iSeries IFS
  2..    Ran the optimization job
  3..    Setup a shell script to set the java home and catalina home
environment variables
  4..    Submitted a job to batch to call the shell script via qshell
This is the error I'm getting:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null

Generated servlet error:
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file

        at java/lang/Throwable.<init>(
        at java/lang/Exception.<init>(
