[Laszlo-user] pre-compile?

When you 'bounce' tomcat, what exactly do you mean?  The Openlaszlo  
servlet definitely has a cache that should be preserved across tomcat  
stop/start.  The OL distribution is built using a script that wget's  
the 'standard' demos/examples, etc. to pre-fill the cache.  If you  
are only seeing a delay on the first fetch by any browser of your  
app, I suggest that you use a similar technique.  This is the  
simplest way to cause the compilation of a non-SOLO app.  The server  
will recompile your app if the source files for your app are newer  
than the cached compiled swf.
