I was looking through my tomcat's work\Catalina\localhost\ and found for each of the deployed context's jsp pages there are .java files and .class files. These are the compiled jsp pages that the jsp compiler creates during the jsp life cycle.
Now, just a thought, can we use these compiled jsp classes in any way, like instantiating a jsp's .java class inside a servlet or something. I don't know if this will serve any purpose or it will be good to any end, but just a thought and I would appriciate any comments on this.
