compiling individual JSPs

how do I setup Idea 4.0 to enable compilation of an individual JSP? the "compile" menu item is grayed out.

I checked "jasper" checkbox, but that compiles ALL JSPs.

This single-JSP compilation was possible in v.3

thanks,

larry

From user help under J2EE Development > Web Application Development >JSP
Validation:

"To run JSP Validation once for a Web module or its JSPs, select Validate
JSP item in the context menu called by right-clicking the item (file,
package, module) within the desired Web module in the Project View tool
window."

It isn't obvious -- I only found it by reading the docs. :) Also, it seems
that they call this validation, but it is actually compiling -- at least
that's what it seems to me. Not clear in their docs.

Thanks, Steve.

My impression is that the first compile does ALL JSPs, and then it is incremental after that.

Intellij: Please give us back the ctrl-shift-F9 that compiled EITHER the java file OR the JSP file, depending on the context.

That is not a compilation since it produces no output, e.g. .class files are not generated.
It just gives you errors Jasper can found.

Just curious: is it possible to compile jsp-files to class files
(servlets)?

Hello Thomas,

Yeah some Servlet containers do it. it would be nice if IDEA treated it that way too.

We desperately need a better way to do deployment updates when files are changed, right now it's still convoluted.
