JSP page changed but not recompiled.

I modified the hello world jsp page (replaced a displayed word with its capitalized form) in the installed web app jsp-examples. When I execute the hello world jsp page it is not recompiled, the original page is executed. This is incorrect behavior, isn't it?

Is this TC version 5.x ?

It is the correct behaviour, because the example JSP's are all pre-compiled. Something the documentation should make explicit with HUGE RED LETTERS, seeing as how that was a big change since version 4.x !

Thanks Mike. I uninstalled 5.0.x and installed 4.0.x Tomcat.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
