I’ve added a new maven2 plugin that does jsp pre-compilation. Just like the Jetty Maven Plugin, the new plugin detects whether jsp2.0 or jsp2.1 is required at runtime and generates the correct classes accordingly.
All you need to do is to configure the plugin in your pom.xml and you can have your jsps compiled and your web.xml file updated ready for going into production without having to resort to ant build files.
I have a few ideas for improvements, so I’m interested in communicating with users who have particular requirements, so please check it out and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback.
The plugin is available from svn head of jetty at the moment, but we’ll push a 6.1-SNAPSHOT to the maven repos soon.
