Subject Re[2]: Is there any file maximum name size?
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2000 12:55:05 GMT

one way to prevent this from happening is to have shorter names to the
compiled class that matches the JSP, right?

So, how can the JSP be compiled at user-request, instead of being
compiled by Tomcat, and thus allow us to define much shorter names?
