The container checks for the Time-stamp of the JSP.If it is more recent that its generated servlet, then it recompiles the jsp into servlet and hence the changes appear.That is why when you make even slight change in a jsp,the page takes time to load.

And I found that most JSP containers support configuring how often the container checks JSP file timestamps to see if the page has changed. So we can put a short intervel of seconds or minutes in a development environment and long intervel(may be never) on a production environment.
That was a great and very helpful answer you gave.. Thanks a lot..
