Why No JSP Package For Tomcat ?

I'm setting up a run configuration for a generic app
server (jboss-tomcat) and the config dialog requires
a package name for my jsps.

I went back to my jsp's and tried refactoring to
change/see whatever default is applied when jsp's are
compiled, but only the rename, move and copy refactorings
were available. Also, I dont see any settings that specify
the jsp package name. I assume therefore, that the package
name is a deployment requirement.

Looking at the tomcat app server run-configuration, I
see that it does not require a package into which jsps
are compiled.

Why is a package defintion required for jsp's on a
generic server run-config, and not on a tomcat server
run-config ?

When they are dealing with Tomcat, they can take some things for
granted. Such as the package name. With the generic support,
everything has to be specified.
