Hi guys, I just started a new job up in NYC and the shop I'm with uses JSP's extensively (I am pretty unfamiliar with them as I used velocity extensively before). The question I have is that their JSP's routinely do stuff like this..
String aString = "that";
aString.equals("that"); //IDEA editor highlights error here as 'aString' hasn't been declared
The result of this sort of thing is that I can't run jasper validator before I deploy and my jsp's are all highlighted in red, even though ultimately the pages work when I deploy to tomcat.
So I'm wondering...Is this a fact of life with JSP editing? Is this way of including jsp's a bad practice? Any suggestions?
