Subject RE: Problem with Jasper and jspc task

WL6.1 has a flag that you can use to specify an entire directory so you
don't need to use anything outside of the standard ant jars and your
installation of WL...

No, weblogic.jspc is the translator, actually.  To use this in an Ant
script, either use the <wljspc> optional task (see the optional tasks in Ant
docs), or use the Java task like so with weblogic.jspc:

<java classname="weblogic.jspc" fork="true">
  <arg value="-compiler"/>
  <arg value="${build.compiler}"/>
[...] etc.

I would recommend you cut to the chase and use the Java task to invoke
weblogic.jsp one file at a time and call it in a <foreach> (set
ANT_OPTS=-Xmx512m or whatever because <foreach> uses lots of memory if it
iterates a lot of times).

Right, because you can't. :-)  The jspc task only works with Tomcat,
although the docs could make that a little more explict.  I just reviewed
the jspc page myself, and it sees to be assumed that you know this.
