Process simple text files as JSP in Glassfish

Hi,
I wish to instruct my web container, in my case Glassfish 3.1.2, to handle non-jsp files as JSP.

For example,
I wish that all files that ends with ".js" will be processed as JSP.

Thanks,
Gabriel.

As stated, that sounds like a recipe for disaster.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Hi Bill,

For example, I wish to expose in my javascript files, enums from Java.
I also generate my JNLP files dynamically.

Thanks,
Gabriel.

Literal interpretation of:

processed as JSP


would imply having the JSP processor use the rules of JSP syntax to create a java file which gets compiled to a servlet.

You appear to be wanting to use data text files as input to the creation of a JSP, not the same thing. Such things are typically handled by custom helper classes - JavaBeans for example.

This is correct.

This is not correct :)

So back to the question, in other words, using your terminology,
I want to use the JSP processor to process files that are written in JSP syntax, but have a different file extension.

I remember seeing a way to do this in Tomcat -- but, no, I don't remember the exact details as it's not something I would ever do myself.

Have you considered a build-time rather than a run-time solution for getting your constants into the static resources?

Actually I am migrating from Tomcat to Glassfish, and it works fine under Tomcat, and it is successfully deployed on many sites around the world.
I know that many people are familiar with the full power JSP engine. That's OK.
But believe me, it's more powerful then you can imagine.

Anyhow, thanks for your good intentions.

OK, so now I'm confused. If you're already doing it, what's your question?

In Tomcat, the mapping in the default web.xml:


handles this. What does Glassfish use for mapping?

Jaknow - if the original post had said: "I have this working in Tomcat but cant get it working in Glassfish" it would have saved a LOT OF TIME to get to the right place.
