Subject Re: <%@ include %> files and Jasper/Ant
Date Thu, 08 Jul 2004 19:38:39 GMT
This is an ant script I wrote to precompile JSPs for tomcat,
the benefit of this script, vs the regular precompile, is that is compiles files into the
tomcat work folder, so there are no
additions needed in web.xml and you can reload JSP files, and at the same time have the benefit
of precompiled performance.
we have tons of include statements and they work fine. Not that this answers your question,
but it may give you a better alternative
