This issue has other implications. When compiling very large JSPs, web containers can generate too much debug info and fail to compile with a "String too large error". The workaround is typically to set the suppressSmap parameter to true.

The only way I can see to do that in Jetty is to i) use a webdefault.xml file to set the value, or ii) configure the JspServlet in the app's web.xml. Option ii is not a possibility for us, so we can't currently run our app using the Gradle Jetty plugin.

The Jetty plugin has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed with Gradle 4.0. We are not going to work on this issue anymore.
