Hi all,
I started jsp very recently, and have few basic quistions..
1. When does the jsp page get convert to a servlet ?
2. If it is at the request time, will it be done for each request
or once loaded will remain on the server till next reload ?
3. Once converted to servlet where on server(tomcat 3.1) these class files are stored ?
could any one throw some light on these please..
thank you
Hema

1. The first time the page is requested
2. No, the resulting servlet stays loaded like any other servlet. However, it should get re-compiled and reloaded if the timestamp on the .jsp page changes.
3. Source code .java and .class files with ghastly long names ends up in tomcat/work
