I think there is a feature request for this, but after working with JSPs
all week here with 1050, we really really need to get this resolved it's
In the current setup, since we have to deploy to an exploded directory,
every time I change a jsp page, even minute change, I have to click make
in order for that jsp to get copied over, so I can run and debug it.
YIKES! I was thinking it wouldn't be too bad, so I started pushing and
trying to ignore it, but that just because a real burden.
The problem is that clicking make will cause the container to reload,
because you seem to copy the web.xml on every make, in order to force a
reload of the web container. Well, that's all fine and dandy, but when
working with changes to a jsp page, you rarely if ever need to touch
We need to have a way where if a jsp page is modified, that idea will
automatically hotswap it for us and all we need is to click reload.
This is a pretty nasty usability issue which has to be resolved for 4.0.
Besides that, everything was running real well.
