if you recomplile the javabeans you need to restart tomcat
(unless you use ant)

If you make changes to a (jsp)file that is statically included Tomcat won't notice the modification. You've to 'touch' the main jsp also, so that's file timestamp is also changed.
Of course this will only solve your problem if your using anything like '<%@ include file="somefile" %>'.

If the last mod date on jsp file is later than for the class file (in the work dirsectory) then the jsp will get recompiled (unless you have disabled this in your web.xml).
Except for includes as mentioned above.

Try to do this
- Shutdown tomcat.
- Delete all files in subdirectory "work" in <tomcat_home> path.
- Start your tomcat and try again.
