You have to realize that the class names are generated automatically.  A
good implementation has to take into account any possible clash scenario.
That's why Tomcat tries to use any bit of information which can seperate a
JSP file from the rest in order to name the generated classes.
ServletExec also uses long file names, their algorithm is most probably
different but the issues are the same.
Just my guess, that's a consideration I'd look at if I implemented it...

Subject: mangling

Does anyone why tomcat generates such crazy filenames for generated .java
and .class files? Jspc doesn't do that and that's what I would want tomcat
itself to do either. Maybe there is a reason why the generated filenames are
mangled like this, but I don't know.
