Unable to Generate Java Files for JSP in WebApp (Doc ID 1314922.1)

Last updated on JUNE 09, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The web application (webapp) has the following weblogic.xml deployment descriptor, but the java files for JSP are not being generated -

<!DOCTYPE weblogic-web-app PUBLIC "-//BEA Systems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 8.1//EN" "http://www.bea.com/servers/wls810/dtd/weblogic810-web-jar.dtd">
<weblogic-web-app>
   <jsp-descriptor>
      <jsp-param>
          <param-name>compileFlags</param-name>
          <param-value>-g</param-value>
      </jsp-param>
      <jsp-param>
          <param-name>keepgenerated</param-name>
           <param-value>true</param-value>
      </jsp-param>
   </jsp-descriptor>
</weblogic-web-app>


Also tried to use the following, but it does not work either -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <weblogic-web-app xmlns="http://www.bea.com/ns/weblogic/90">
    <jsp-descriptor>
       <keepgenerated>true</keepgenerated>
      <working-dir>/tmp</working-dir>
      <backward-compatible>true</backward-compatible>
      <debug>true</debug>
    </jsp-descriptor>
  </weblogic-web-app>
