Subject Re: Jikes for compiling JSP (was RE: Error in Tomcat build ...)
Date Fri, 22 Oct 1999 21:29:01 GMT
Hi Jean,

I've moved this thread to tomcat-dev.

Support for plugging in other compilers in the JSP engine is not complete but
most of the infrastructure is there. Checkout the Compiler, JavaCompiler,
SunJavaCompiler and JspEngineContext to see how you can make changes to plug in
Jikes etc...
