First, the best way is to move to JSP 1.1.
Then to deploy your application, i think you should use Application Assembly Tool to package your JSPs in web module and enterprise application.
It generates an .ear file that you can deploy on WAS.
You can download WAS RedBook at this URL : http://publib-b.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/searchsite.cgi?query=SG246176

Thanks guys,
I have a new problem now. In my jsp files all resource files(js and images) are given as absolute paths (/images/*.gif;/script/*.js). Now my problem comes when i try to give some context root(say abc). Now instead of pointing to abc/images/*.gif, it's pointing to root/iamges/*.gif. I need to give context root to my application in order to display everything correctly which means i can run only one application. Can anybody help??
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
