Subject JSP Compile Hangs
Date Wed, 20 Oct 2004 04:20:02 GMT

On Tomcat 5.5.2 I am experiencing very long compile times(and hangs)  
for certain JSP pages. The page has an EL expression like this:


If you remove the extraneous parenthesis it will compile and execute  
very quickly. However, if you add more nested calls to fn:toUpperCase  
compiling will again take a very long time. So, this may be related to  
the number of nested expressions. This is just a test case obviously  
but I am generating JSPs automatically and it is difficult if not  
impossible to avoid EL statements with these nested function calls.  
Resin can compile and execute these pages very quickly but I want to  
stick with Tomcat.

This is crucial to the project I am working on and if someone has an  
idea of what is causing this and where to look in the tomcat source I  
would appreciate it.
