So, to follow up on my earlier post:
Use of JSP-2.0 style tag definitions causes the calling page to get
recompiled each and every time it's called.
Adding a simple-loader to point to WEB-INF/root fixes this, because it
avoids the ClassNotFoundException resin gets when attempting to load
the class for the tag (how it manages to work even though it can't
load the class escapes me).
Unfortunately that seems to introduce a dependency check on that
directory that causes resin to reload the context every time a JSP is
This strikes me as a fairly serious problem, particularly because
Resin leaks terribly when it reloads the context, and so I have to
shut it down and restart it.
