I am facing problem with the recompilation of JSP files in jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29.
As for the jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29 documentation I modified "web.xml" file with the following

After modified web.xml,I restarted the server again.
when ever I change JSP file,its recompiling again and create a new class. How to prevent recompilation of JSP files when they are modified.
Please let me know if you have any solution or suggestion for this.

Thanks in advance ..

I can't understand why you would want to prevent recompilation of a JSP after editing it. If it is not recompiled, you will never see the results of the editing changes.
If you want to save intermediate work, then edit a copy of the JSP outside the Tomcat directories. An ANT task is handy for updating tomcat with JSP and class files in this case.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
