Guys,

I have a jsp page which gets translated to a servlet on either first client request or container startup. Now After if got compiled, I make some changes to the jsp and when I try to access the jsp again will I have to restart the container??

Another doubt is that in a jsp page, how can I get a hold of the jsp implicit objects in the methods I write using jsp declarations??

For JSP page changes restarting the container is not required i think.

The page will be recompiled. I think that the container looks at the timestamp of the file, so any changes in it will force the page to be recompiled.

Satou,

Why is this behavior only for jsp pages?? Why not for servlets??

implicit objects are not available in the methods that you write using jsp declarations.

Yes, you can. By calling getServletContext(), getServletConfig(), etc. I also believe that EL implicit objects are always available, so you can you those instead.
