Tomcat 5.0.28 compiled JSP pages when run using JDK 1.5.0 just fine (out-of-the-box). Also, 5.0.28 seems to work fine under JDK 1.5.0 in general.

Tomcat 5.0.29 can no longer compile JSP pages when running under JDK 1.5.0! Given that 1.5.0 has been released and 5.0.28 works fine, I believe this is a serious regression in 5.0.29 that should by itself prevent it from getting a "stable" rating -- though I'd love to quickly see a 5.0.30 including a fix for this :-) [Tomcat 5.0.29 does seem to work alright under 1.5.0 if you pre-compile all JSP pages via an Ant project...]

Note that the startup environment, JSP pages, etc, are identical in both cases. In both cases I use "catalina.50.bat start". Also note that the JSP pages use no 1.5 features whatsoever -- I'm just trying to run with JDK 1.5.0. Also, both results hold both for "development" Jasper settings (fork=false, development=true, reloading=true) and "production Jasper settings (fork=true, development=false, reloading=false).

The symptom when this fails is the following console message:

   javac: target release 1.3 conflicts with default source release 1.5

I am *guessing* this may have something to do with the following change log entry:

   30984 <>:
   Added compilerTargetVM option to Jasper. (yoavs)
