Debugging a JSP whose filename begins with an underscore

Asking this question again: Can someone try to reproduce?

- Debugging JSP's works but we have some jsp's that are named starting with an underscore. e.g _startPage.jsp
- Setting a breakpoint in those files just does not stop the debugger. It just ignores the breakpoint. However, ALL other jsp's that are not named that way works.

Can someone who debugs jsp's try this really quickly?

specs: WebLogic Server 9.2, Idea 6.0.5

AFAIK, Jasper compiler uses underscores for decorating servlet name
produced from Jsp so for jsp named with _ it might produce the name that
Idea does not support yet during debugging.

Sorry, I don't buy that. The logic is that shaky that an underscore throws off the debugger? I was hoping for someone to try it out as well. Can I enter a bug on this?

Yes, please...

Though it looks like a Tomcat's JSR-45 implementation issue.

Thanks Mike. I did enter an issue (http://jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-15649)

But I'm not sure I follow your comment that it is Tomcat's JSR-45 implementation. Is this something Idea incorporates? Because we don't use Tomcat anywhere within our application.
