I've been playing with the JSP precompiler in 7.0.x and I'm working on
an ant script that I hope will ship with Tomcat in the future. I'm
including it in it's current form below.

All you need to do is set catalina.home to Tomcat's home directory, set
a "compile.classpath" for your webapp's libraries (probably WEB-INF/lib
or whatever) and then set whatever "jspc.X" properties you want to set.

Currently, it will generate a web.xml fragment, but if you set
"jspc.jar.file", it will even generate a JAR file that you can drop into
your WEB-INF/lib directory and don't have to do your own web.xml merge.
Cool, right?

A couple of VERY IMPORTANT notes:

1. This is currently experimental and not very flexible. I'm trying to
see what I can get out of the code without modifying it. Keep reading.

2. You need to patch
lib/jasper.jar!org/apache/jasper/resources/LocalStrings.properties like
this (apologies for any wrapping... just read the patch and apply it
manually: it's not that complicated):

3. It's very important that you your uriroot ("jsp.source.dir") have a
   WEB-INF/web.xml file that has the correct header in it, or you might
   get strange behavior:

<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee
                      http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_3_0.xsd"
  version="3.0">

4. You saw different code generated by the precompiler and Jasper
   running within Tomcat: that's because within Tomcat, Jasper can
   rely on certain things being available such as tag pools. The
   precompiler apparently does not do tag pooling. Don't worry
   too much about this right now.

Now that you've read all the nastiness, here's the build script:
