So you had two files, you've switched them by renaming them, but the
earlier version is still being rendered?

Tomcat parses a JSP file, generates a Servlet and compiles it - whcih
responds on the URL of the JSP.  You can find these classes in the
tomcat/work directory structure.

Note: Eclipse make not have put this in an obvious place, so you may
have to hunt for it, if you want to clear out those classes.

You could try opening the correct index.jsp and making a small edit and
resaving it, the new timestamp might kick off an update of the generated
