Subject jdk1.5, tomcat 5.5.9 and jsp compilation
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 12:13:51 GMT
I've a problem compiling jsp's against jdk1.5. I've searched the archives,
google, tomcat docs etc but found no help on my specific issue although I
can see anumber of people have had problems with generics support.

I've changed to the Ant compiler and copied the ant.jar to common/lib, added
the compiler parameters to conf/web.xml to enable 1.5 compilation.

I still get a message saying that generics are not supported and I should
change the -source 1.4 to -source 1.5.

I've looked through the ant docs and this appears to be related to the javac
tag in build.xml, but I'm not sure where to put this tag in the context of a
tomcat installation. I've looked through the tomcat docs on jasper (how-to)
but I believe I've removed the dependency on japser so I dont think this is
relevant, although it does mention using the 'javac' argument with I've tried this with no success, but it's quite possible I
didn't configure this properly as I'm not sure where is called
from. I've looked through the .sh files but it's not clear.

To sum up, I would like to know how to configure '-source 1.4' to '-source
1.5' or am I barking up the wrong tree?
