HTTrack will work (getting the jsp pages and then saving them as the HTML that they produce).  The problem is the site requires a user name and password.  I have a the user name and password I just don't know how to get HTTrack to use them.  Does anyone know how to do it, or do you know another way to download the site for offline viewing?

Hello mroegiers

This was in the FAQ of the HTTRACK site

Q: Using user:password@address is not working!
A: Again, first check the hts-log.txt and hts-err.txt error log files - this can give you precious information
The site may have a different authentication scheme - form based authentication, for example. In this case, use the URL capture features of HTTrack, it might work.
Note: If your username and/or password contains a '@' character, you may have to replace all '@' occurences by '%40' so that it can work, such as in user%40domain.com:foobar@www.foo.com/auth/. You may have to do the same for all "special" characters like spaces (%20), quotes (%22)..

I myself use wget
http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/
its very good all rounder tool
4.1. of the webget FAQ I hope would help in your example

hmmmm there should be 2 log file hts-log.txt and hts-err.txt would the info you need be in the other log

here is an example of the url you would use
http://name:password@www.someweb.com/private/mybox.htm

however you may still need some special characters or auth tokens
