The above is correct, it works this way.

I'm running tomcat 4.1.31 and just solved the problem. It's part my 
fault, part a stupid way of tomcat to handle compiled jsp.

After installing my own app under / tomcat refused to recompile the .jsp 
and showed the old page all the time. Not until I removed all the 
.class-files I got it to work. This was a hard nut to crack, to me it's 
completly illogical that tomcat doesn't recompile the files :)

Thanks everyhone for the help.
