R12: Miscellaneous

Automatic Compilation of JSP pages

In Release 12 the (automatic) compilation of JSP is disabled and on runtime only the pre-compiled JSP’s are picked up. Since this requires less checks to be done the performance is improved. Therefore this is the recommended setting for a Production environment where JSP’s will only be replaced occasionally.

In cases where development activities are done and JSP pages are changing often this default setting makes things more complicated. Each time a JSP is deployed a manual compilation using the ojspCompile.pl is needed and the OC4J running the oacore needs a restart to pick up the changes. This will also affect other people working on the same environment

change the setting for main_mode from justrun to recompile in

$INST_TOP /ora/10.1.3/j2ee/oacore/application-deployments/oacore/html/orion-web.xml

This can be achieved by performing the following:

  • Login into E-Business suite and select System Administrator responsibility
  • Select function AutoConfig (under Oracle Applications Manager)
  • For each MT server perform the following:
    • Click on pencil icon under Edit Parameters
    • Select tab System
    • Expand section jtff_server
    • Change value for the entry s_jsp_main_mode from justrun to recompile
    • Confirm the change by clicking Save button
  • Run Autoconfig to propagate the changes to the configuration files
  • Verify that the $INST_TOP/ora/10.1.3/j2ee/oacore/application-deployments/oacore/html/orion-web.xml  has   
  • Restart the Middle Tier services
  • Request a JSP in the browser which is compiled. See that a new _<jspname>.class is created in _pages
  • Make a change in the JSP file
  • Request it again in the browser. See that _<jspname>.class is ‘refreshed’ in _pages and the change is seen in the browser
