I am going to strongly encourage you not to use jspc to precompile stuff.
The problem is that jspc depends on jasper, and jasper (from the tomcat
team) is not apparently recommended for use in precompilation.

Their argument is that with run time deployment, you can be sure you are
compiling JSP pages for the current version of tomcat; with precompilation,
you need to rebuild for every point release or get obscure errors . No doubt
the tomcat buglist gets to see those errors, so they have a point.

I use httpunit & junit to JIT compile after deploying, and to test the code
at the same time

I am currently trying to figure out how to use the ant jspc task to
pre-compile my jsps. The task runs through fine but now what? I am left with
the java code for the generated sservlets but how do I deploy these? Do I
remove all the source .jsp files and replace them with the .java files? Also
jsp's that were originally stored in various directory structures now appear
all in the same directory specified as my destination. Is this correct
behaviour? Also how so I edit my web.xml file to include the servlet

Basically has anyone come across any good resources for this kind of task, I
mean the whole process of deploying pre compiled jsp's not just using the
ant task coz I think I have cracked that part!
