The tool uses a two-stage approach to generating and compiling JSPs.
Stage 1, generation
The tool examines all models and associated profile sets in a project. It then works through all possible combinations of those items to generate the JSPs associated with the model/profile set associations. The JSPs are saved to the server and a list of all JSPs generated is created. Stage 2, compilation
The tool next walks through the list of generated JSPs and forces a compile of each JSP in the list.
Note: The server must be running in order for JSP compilation to be successful because the tool makes a HTTP request to the server requesting a specific JSP page with a pre-compile flag set for the page. Compiled JSP are stored in IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory's .../genjsp directory.
