Ya Thanks Jeanne As u know from editplus, You will able to compile and Run Java Programs by configuring the Editplus Plus ["Tools\User Configuration"]. In this case, editor is not going to compile the Java Program instead, We would have set the path of java Compiler in the ["Tools\User Configuration"]. You can find how to configure in http://www.editplus.com/faq.html
Similar way I think we can configure Tomcat to editplus and compile the JSP's from the Editor.I have done it once , but had forgot the configuration now. If ur not clear in my question I will still elaborate You in next mail.
Hi, No need to compile JSPs just update them in web folder, just make a refresh in browser. the container will compile it. If you want to precompile the JSPs it varies from container to container, WebSphere has a tool called "jspc" which will precompile jsp before deploying simlly, oracle also providet his facility in Oracle9i. but I dont think Tomcat has this facility if so pl. let me know how its to be done?
