Keep generated source in WSAD

I'm working with a legacy JSP that's getting a null pointer somewhere in a couple hundred lines of code in the try-catch block. I'd like to see the generated source since the exception gives me a line number in there. I added the following line to my WebContent\WEB-INF\ibm-web-ext.xmi file:

<jspAttributes xmi:id="JSPAttribute_1" name="keepgenerated" value="true"/>

but I don't know where it's leaving source if it is.

Is that the right way to get source? Where is it?


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
I agree. Here's the link:
