*"This task can be used to precompile JSP pages for fast initial invocation
of JSP pages, deployment on a server without the full JDK installed, or
simply to syntax check the pages without deploying them. In most cases, a
javac task is usually the next stage in the build process. The task does
basic dependency checking to prevent unnecessary recompilation -this
checking compares source and destination timestamps, and does not factor in
class or taglib dependencies, or <jsp:include> references."*
If my interpretation is correct, then Ant cannot guarantee a full check if
there are lots of JSP includes and custom Tag libraries included in the
JSP? But if there is a workaround to pop those erroneous JSPs out, could
you please advise? I have been struggling with this over a week now.
As a temporary check, I have written a small tool using BCEL and output the
files which has method sizes exceeding the 64k limit. But The cool ANT is
what I really want to use for this.
Once again, I appreciate the time you guys have taken for this.
