We experimented something.

1. We started the tomcat
2. removed the jdk/bin (jdk is the JAVA_HOME)
3. Made changes to the jsp file (in order to make the container re-compile the jsp)
4. We ran the application again. Its running perfectly alright. It was showing all the changes that are made to the jsp file. the changes even include additional <% java scripts %>.

So, how does the container compile these jsps?

is it copying the concerned files(like javac) from jdk folder to some other folder when the server is started using startup.sh ( in linux ). if so what is the folder? any answers?

You didn't tell us what version of Tomcat you're running.

Starting with version 5.5, Tomcat ships with it's own compiler.
It uses the JDT compiler (from the folks at Eclipse).

From the Tomcat release notes:
