Subject: Stripping down the JSP engine from Tomcat


Is there anyways we can strip down the JSP engine from the Tomcat?

I have to develop an application which would process a request using
servlets, but I don't need the JSP engine as there is a requirement for
the Servlet engine to be as light weight as possible and also have a
small memory footprint.
I have tried removing the jasper jars but that fails tomcat from
starting, has anyone tried their hands on this, would greatly appreciate
your guidance.

I started pulling TC into a modular form a while back but never split out 
I took out Clustering and SSI...
What I've got is no longer TC... I'm skinning it and making it app like when 
I get time.
TC is not very modular at present...

In the sandbox theres a chap working on a similar thing from a diff angle... 
he's pulled out the valves so far

If you have a dev team that going to do serious work on this.... you may get 
really lucky... but this is work... its not plug and play.
If so you welcome to what I done so far... but I want the lite back ;)
