Tomcat JSP trimSpaces Optimization Improvement


There was a thread awhile back on Remove blank spaces from HTML generated from Kuali JSP's. Basically, Bin had an issue where some KFS documents were so huge, that it was leading to performance problems. There was some discussion on several solutions. I wanted to point out one really easy one that eliminates the redundant whitespace in all JSP files with just 4 lines in your tomcat web.xml file.


Wherever your tomcat installation is, it probably looks something like this:
(02:26:25) [3] ls -ldh /Library/Tomcat/Home/*
-rw-r--r--@   1 leo  staff    55K Mar 31 07:45 /Library/Tomcat/Home/LICENSE
-rw-r--r--@   1 leo  staff   1.2K Mar 31 07:45 /Library/Tomcat/Home/NOTICE

drwxr-xr-x@   3 leo  staff   102B Jun 12 05:53 /Library/Tomcat/Home/work

In $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml replace:


After doing this, you need to clean out the $CATALINA_HOME/work path. If you don't, nothing will change.
