You should not have to put your build.xml anywhere in the Tomcat 7
structure. Instead, you should point your build.xml file at the Tomcat
7 base installation and it should figure everything out.

Those basedir definitions definitely look weird to me.

You could also do this to define all your tasks:

  <import file="${catalina.home}/bin/catalina-tasks.xml" />

You don't need tools.jar anymore. This must be really old.

Okay, does that work? Specifying webxml and webXMLFragment probably
isn't necessary.

Invoking JspC again? That's just Jasper all over again. At this point,
all you need to do it compile the generated .java files using <javac>.

You should upgrade to 7.0.22 if you can possibly do it.

I've been working on a build-jspc.xml ant script that should take care
of a number of these tasks for you. Here it is in it's current form.
No promises. Put the following file into catalina.home/build-jspc.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

      Also, you need to have the following classpath reference set:

      It should point to all of the classes and libraries referenced

Now, add a target like this to your own ant build file:

  <target name="jspc" depends="build">
    <property name="catalina.home" value="/path/to/tomcat7" />

    <!--
    <property name="jspc.target.dir" value="tmp" />

    <!-- contains your webapp (has a WEB-INF directory, etc.) -->
    <property name="jspc.source.dir" value="jspc" />
    <property name="jspc.jar.file" value="jsps.jar" />

    <path id="jspc.classpath">
      <path refid="compile.classpath" />
    </path>

    <ant antfile="${catalina.home}/build-jspc.xml"
         target="jspc"
         inheritRefs="true"
         />
  </target>

When you run "ant jspc" you should end up with a jsps.jar file in your
project's directory that contains your compiled .jsp files as well as
a META-INF/web-fragment.xml file that you can merge-into your web.xml
file.

I'm working on getting META-INF/web-fragment.xml to be
spec-3.0-compliant so you can just drop your .jar file into
WEB-INF/jsps.jar and let the container take care of everything.
