The Enterprise Server supports the following JSP features:
JavaServer Pages (JSP) Specification

This section describes how to use JavaServer Pages (JSP files) as page templates in an Enterprise Server web application. This section contains the following topics:
Enterprise Server supports tag libraries and standard portable tags. For more information, see the JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) page at http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/jstl/index.jsp.
Web applications don’t need to bundle copies of the jsf-impl.jar or appserv-jstl.jar JSP tag libraries (in as-install/lib) to use JavaServerTM Faces technology or JSTL, respectively. These tag libraries are automatically available to all web applications.
Enterprise Server provides the following ways of compiling JSP source files into servlets:
JSP files are automatically compiled at runtime.
The asadmin deploy command has a precompilejsp option. For details, see the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Prelude Reference Manual.
The jspc command line tool allows you to precompile JSP files at the command line. For details, see the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Prelude Reference Manual.
