I have test.jsp; its compiled to produce _test.class. Test.jsp is not edited.

Can you please clarify:
- every time _test.class is produced its going to be SAME in terms of its binary content. Or whenever _test.class is created, the binaries will be different.

The first time a JSP is accessed, it is compiled into a class file and stored in a cache. The second time it is accessed, the application server checks to see if the JSP file has changed since the class file was created. If it has not changed, the compile step is skipped and the same class file is used. If you change the JSP, the application server will detect that it was changed since the last compile and will perform the compile step again and replace the class file in the cache.
