component to it.

I agree on both counts. We (you?) could add better support to jspc for
directories, but it is still troubled. Also its dependency checking doesnt
handle static included stuff, or taglib & java import dependencies

the JSPs during startup...anybody happen to know if that's in the works?

There is this thing where get somepage?jsp  should just compile the page,
not execute it. So we could do a task to precompile against any app server:

<precompile server= "http://server/app" user="admin" password="admin"
    <get dir="webapp" includes="**/*.jsp" args="?jsp" />
    <get dir="webapp" includes="**/*.jpg" />

Here we have (hypothetically) issued a get against the JSP fileset, all
mapped against the remote webapp URLs, then fetched all the jpegs. This task
would also fail by default if anything went wrong...

Worth someone writing? (not me, I'm busy)
