compiling jsp from command prompt

Dear Members :

I tried to compile xyz.jsp from command prompt (using Tomcat 6):
jspc -uriroot . xyz.jsp -classpath <jar_file_name> -d <directory_name>

getting errors but when I simply try:
[jspc -uriroot . xyz.jsp] it shows no errors, but doesn't produce xyz.java
which is expected.

Could someone tell me please the correct command to do this, which will also dump the generated clss file to designated directory ?

Thaks in advance
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
