WSAD 5.1.2 caching jsps

anybody here use WSAD 5.1.2 w/ struts? I'm pulling my hair out with WSAD's inability to recompile JSP files when I change them. I have an index.jsp with this code:

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-logic.tld" prefix="logic" %>
<logic:forward name="showForm"/>

in my struts-config I have:
<forward name="showForm" path="myApp.form" />

but when I surf to the index.jsp, I get this error:

Cannot find global ActionForward for name form

I ran a search just to be sure...and the word "form" never even appears in source code ANYWHERE in the project. WSAD doesn't have the "clean" feature that Eclipse does, so how the hell do I get WSAD to use the latest index.jsp?

Hi Jason

is the probalem not the above path? Should the path not map to some actionmapping, like

and further doen in your struts jsp you have an action-mapping detailing 'CustomerDetails' where you specif the Action, the Form and the forward pages?

hope this helps

I agree. Here's the link:
