Try deleteing the compiled jsp's under the 'work' folder under Tomcat. That'll force Tomcat to recompile it.

You are making the changes on the Javascript?

How are you deploying to Tomcat, from Jbuilder?

But how are you deploying those changes to TOMCAT with a .war file or just copying the .jsp to the directories?
If is a .war and you do it with the Jbuilder deploy option be sure that you restart TOMCAT.

Cheers Javier, At the moment well up till now JBuilder always drecompiled and wrote over the old class's in its project folder "Work" directory which stored alll the compiled servlets and jsp class's, must have done something in its project properties to change this this.........another quick question does jsp allow paramter names with spaces??...if ye want ill open this as a new question but it seems a fairly trivial question

ok great :)

>>does jsp allow paramter names with spaces

yes, just replace the spaces with a '+' and it'll work

if you have a variable that contains a string with spaces, just use the replaceAll(" ", "+");  method before using it as a parameter name (or value).
