debugging JSPs

I have a web application with JSPs that is running on Tomcat. I would like to debug the application in an IDE, but for that I need debug information in the compiled servlets.
Does anyone know of a way to tell Jasper to compile the JSPs with debug information?

Perhaps you could use a JSP pre-compile util and tie that in with you IDE. Might give you a bit more debugging info.
I agree. Here's the link:
