It's even better than that: the webapp itself is portable, without the
Tomcat libraries.  The precompilation process just churns your JSPs into
servlets at build time instead of runtime.

(The container-specific precomps don't involve web.xml mappings for the
generated servlets.  That's why, for example, I can precomp in WebLogic
and but still change my JSP on the fly. Maybe that's what you were

-and it's not as though you'd lose your custom web.xml configuration;
there are ways to fold the generated servlet/mapping sets (from the JSP
precomp) in with your original web.xml at build time.

I don't have such an example readily available... there should be plenty
in the archives, though.
