Sorry it took so long - I have been pretty busy.
I have added in a classpath attribute, so you can specify the classpath 
for running the compiler without having to have it in your ant classpath 
and added the ieplugin and mapped attributes from japser.
Also, it is now similar to javac in that it has a CompilerFactory etc. 
To support multiple compilers. I only use jasper, so others will have to 
pick that up - This should really be done by a properties file, but... time!
Haven't had time to set up formal testing - I've tested it with my jsp 
files and it works fine (I notice javac has not tests either  ;-).

And I'm off again saturday week :-)
