    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The generated_web.xml file generated by *

    *                      contain any mapping of previously       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When pre-compiling JSP pages using the IBM Console or the JSP
    batch compiler, if the web module contains the JSP attribute
    useFullPackageNames set to true, the generated_web.xml might not
    contain all the JSP mappings. The problem arises when the same
    web
    module had compiled JSP files in the temp folder and the web
    module was reinstalled or recompiled using the JSP batch
    compiler.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSP engine was modified to include all the JSP mappings into
    the generated_web.xml regardless of if they are already compiled
    or not.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.8.  Please refer to the Recommended
