Quick Debugging JSPs of your application

This section describes a method that will be especially useful for testing small changes in JSP files without having to go through a cumbersome reload process. This example will demonstrates configuring the plancreator plugin for tomcat:

  1. Modify (GERONIMO_HOME}\var\catalina\conf\web.xml:
    • Set the development parameter to true in the init-param to org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet
    • Edit (add if doesn't exist) the modificationTestInterval to 0
  2. In the webapp that you intend to modify, find the web.xml and remove the servlet and servlet-mapping of the jsp you intend to modify and test.
    For example, for PlanCreator, edit the plancreator-console-tomcat-2.2-SNAPSHOT.car\WEB-INF\web.xml.
  3. Restart the server with these settings in place.

Once this is done, you can modify the jsp in place and hit refresh to test it. It'll be recompiled each time.
