Troubleshoot ESAPI

Jump to: navigation, search

I am not receiving any compilation errors in Eclipse, but my web server can't find ESAPI

  • Be sure that ESAPI is being exported to your web server when the server starts. To do this:
  1. Right-click your project in the Navigator and choose "Properties".
  2. Select "Java EE Module Dependencies" from the list on the left.
  3. If the ESAPI JAR is already listed, be sure it is checked off on the list.
  4. If the ESAPI JAR is not listed, add it with "Add JAR" or "Add External JAR".
  5. Save and restart your web server.
