  1. JSP incompatible with Java 5 in RAD 7 (2 messages)

    Hello, Iam trying to use Java 5 features in JSP page. Its compiling fine. Here's the snippet List alist = new ArrayList(); alist.add("test"); for (int i=0;i<alist.size();i++) { out.write(alist.get(0)); out.write("\n"); } But, when iam trying to execute the JSP page on server (WAS 6.1 Server within RAD 7). Iam getting the error "Syntax error, parameterized types are only available if source level is 5.0" I dont know how to change JSP compiling to source level 5. Iam using RAD 7 JRE in the server which is 1.5.0. Iam not sure why iam getting the error. any help is appreciated Thanks

    Hi Narendra, I am also having the same problem.Please let me know if you have the solution for "JSP incompatible with Java 5 in RAD 7" . Thanks in advance.
  3. When writing a web application to host in WebSphere Application Server 6.1 (WAS), you can use all the features available in Java version 5.0. But surprisingly you cannot use them in a JSP, there, the source level is set down to Java 1.3. Don’t ask me why. I had to find out recently when using Generics in a JSP. But, don’t worry, it is just a matter of configuration when you do need special Java 5.0 or 1.4 features in a JSP. All you have to do is put the following entry into the file WEB-INF/ibm-web-ext.xmi: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/tweb_jspengine.html http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/rweb_jspengine.html
