Sorry but your resolution makes no sense.

You seem to imply that:

- "//" comments are invalid within JSP code, which is incorrect.
- Just because other container implementations don't fix this issue, Tomcat 
shouldn't either. Which is also incorrect.

I never said Tomcat should convert "//" style comments to /* */ style comments 
for me. 

The way I look at it, you have two possible solutions:

- Tomcat scans for "//" style comments and removes the commented code before it 
compiles the JSP file into a Servlet. This is a quick-fix, but not ideal.

- Tomcat scans for "//" comments, compiles the line of code without the 
commented component, and appends the comment thereafter. For example:

JSP Code:

  System.out.println("This is a test"); //This should work quite well

Tomcat steps:

- Convert 'System.out.println("This is a test");' into Servlet
- Add "//This should work quite well" after resulting line of code
