2167674 - JSP compilation fails with "error=193"


When opening an application that is based on JSP pages, a 500 Internal Server Error is shown in the browser with a text similar to:

Application error occurred during the request procession.
Error compiling [/index.jsp] of alias [A] of J2EE application [B].
Exception id: [C]

Where A is equal to the application alias name, and B is equal to the application name.

When looking inside the defaultTrace.trc logs, referenced by the Exception ID on the error fragment above (C), you can find: CreateProcess: E:\\usr\\sap\\<SID>\\<InstID>\\exe\\sapjvm_X\\bin\\javac -J-Xmx256m @E:/usr/sap/<SID>/<InstID>/j2ee/cluster/serverX/compilerTempDir/compiler_Feb_17_at_10.36/O1424165778797.txt @E:/usr/sap/<SID>/<InstID>/j2ee/cluster/serverX/compilerTempDir/compiler_Feb_17_at_10.36/S1424165778802.txt error=193
