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.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
