Ok, thanks I read that part of the documentation, so what do I do with the 
class files that are generated? put the in a jar in the lib directory or 
stick them all in the classes directory? How do I call the from the webpage? 
Do #i have to edit the web.xml file in any way?

the doc states that " The jspc task does basic dependency checking to
prevent unnecessary recompilation -this checking compares source and
destination timestamps, and does not factor in class or taglib dependencies,
or <jsp:include> references."

So if your java files are uptodate the jspc task will be bypassed..(and the
next task (usually javac) is executed)

If you want to build an entire webapp the doc states:

Instructions to jasper to build an entire web application. The base
directory must have a WEB-INF subdirectory beneath it. When used, the task
hands off all dependency checking to the compiler. Attribute Description
       basedir the base directory of the web application Yes

Does this help?

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!
