Description Sebastian W. 2022-08-30 16:19:09 UTC
The Jasper-Compiler generates an invalid web.xml file when used with the option "-webxml my-web.xml".

The root tag in the generated file is <web-fragment> but it should be <web-app>. The closing tag at the end of the file is </web-app>, which is correct.

I have tracked down the problem to the resources file in "org/apache/jasper/resources/LocalStrings.properties". The property key "jspc.webxml.header" contains the incorrect value: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="{0}"?>\n\
<web-fragment xmlns=...

while it should contain:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="{0}"?>\n\
<web-app xmlns=...
