    Using annotations in JSP gives JasperException

    s j Newbie

      I am using JBoss 4.2 GA and created a simple EJB app and a web client. When I annotate an ejb interface variable as @EJB in a JSP file (I know it is not a good idea to access EJBs in JSPs but this is just a test program) , and try to access the JSP I get the following error:

      org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP:

      An error occurred at line: 5 in the jsp file: /index.jsp
      Syntax error, annotations are only available if source level is 5.0
      2: <%@page import="javax.ejb.EJB"%>
      3:
      4: <%!
      5: @EJB
      6: private Convertor converter;
      7: public void jspInit() {
      8: try {


      Stacktrace:
      org.apache.jasper.compiler.DefaultErrorHandler.javacError(DefaultErrorHandler.java:92)

      ---------------------------------------------
      Seems like JASPER is not supporting annotations in default server configuration in JBoss 4.2 GA. Am I right or do I need to make some other configuration changes so that my web app is jdk 5.0 enabled?
