I have been working on this JSP which is really huge in terms of the formatting and every time I make any changes to the JSP file, I keep on renaming it. Hence the count today has rose somewhere to around 600. I remember I had heard of something in which we need to make some changes / or get some parameter enabled and then just touch the JSP file through cygwin. But I don't recall that now.
Can anyone please help me with it or any other possible convenient solutions?
Before giving it a try, would want to know the possible performance issues you are talking about as people here are a bit impatient with the dashboard loading page and all. Have already faced such issues and took quite some time to clean up the mess. So would like to know any possible issue so that I can be aware of it and mitigate it beforehand.
Thanks for your response. Just was eagerto know that do we have to perform this each and every time i.e. like temp and work folder, does it get created everytime or its a one time process. And the impact after deleting the java and .class file ?
I have no idea how much exactly will be the performance impact of turning on JSP development mode. The "only" impact is that every time a user will try to access a JSP, the server will check whether the JSP was modified (just by looking at the file timestamp). This is not a huge performance impact, but this tends to be a very common performance tuning tip provided, so the performance impact might eventually be noticeable.
So you are not advised to enable it on Production environment, but if you are experimenting with JSP, I supposed you did so in a dev or test environment, which doesn't seem to be the case.
