Return to the GNUJSP homepage for the current version of GNUJSP

This is a historic page where you can find old versions of GNUJSP that are no longer supported.

GNUJSP version 0.9.x

GNUJSP is a free implementation of Sun's Java Server Pages. Once the GNUJSP servlet is correctly installed, files with the extension .jsp are translated into java source files, compiled, and run. Although this software is quite stable, there is no 1.0 release yet, but people are working hard to implement it.



GNUJSP has been succesfully used with the following web server/servlet engine and OS/JDK combinations. Please let me know about new combinations.

A lot of people build their own modified versions of GNUJSP and propose all kinds of wonderful additions. I like this and encourage everybody to do this. Being able to do this is one of the benefits of free software.

However, I do not want include all those changes into the core distribution of GNUJSP. It would make the distribution larger and may cause fragmentation of the JSP platform. Still, I do not want to deny you the chance to see and use these modifications. So please contribute your GNUJSP modifications!
