I did find out that we could use the IBM Jikes (tm) compiler, as it is open
source.  I am checking with Sun, so far trying to contact them by phone has
been unsuccesful (left two unreturned messages) attempting to contact them
by e-mail now. 

Thanks for the input.

George

It should depend on the JSP engine used, but tools.jar is unfortunately
not in the jre, so I guess you should ask Sun, or check the other Jsp
engines (Tomcat, resin and others).
Hope this helps,
