I think there's a Tomcat option that determines whether or not the generated Java code for a JSP is deleted after being compiled. However, the class file should still be there in TOMCAT_HOME/work/Catalina/localhost/appname/.
JSPs are typically compiled on-demand, however, so if no one has yet requested the page, neither the Java source nor classfiles will exist yet.
