REPORT #698 Details.

tomcat still allows viewing of a jsp even after the jsp file has been removed from webspace.

I removed a jsp from Tomcat's webspace and then happened to
hit back in my browser which returned me to the jsp I was
previously viewing. I found this odd considering I had rm'ed
the jsp file in question. I stopped and restarted Tomcat but
the jsp was still viewable in my browser. I also cleared my
browser cache (just in case...). Only after I had removed
the compiled jsp from the work directory did I finally get
a 404 error in my browser.

I have to assume this is not appropriate behavior. If the
jsp file is no longer within the webspace, tomcat should
display a 404 error and not honor the request by using the 
compiled version
of the jsp page.
