I am not sure as to this is to be done, but here is waht I think you can do.
You could create a war archive of u'r web application and then digitially sign the war file and send it to your client. That would still give him the source code of the JSP pages. I duuno I too am interested.

You could precompile the jsp's, war (or jar) them, give them instructions on where to unjar them. Or, some servlet engines will accept pre-compiled jsp's in a war and you just drop the war in the publish directory. Theoretically, weblogic is supposed to do it but we have yet to get it to work.
But, then, they could still get a de-compiler and decompile the .class file back into .java and reverse engineer the .java into .jsp. But who would want to go through all that work just to have the jsp? I don't know.
Sign an expensive maintenance contract, let them have the jsp's and hope that they break them so you can collect double your fee. :-)
