unfortunatly I don't understand what you mean...

Do you use the JOSM Beta Version? If so, please upgrade to latest JOSM
version or at least JOSM-1.0.

Now I am confused, since JOSM-Beta can not upload anything (there is no
Upload-Button in the Beta ;).
You can check your edits just after you uploaded them in JOSM. This is
unlike the applet, where your changes (and changes made with JOSM) are
only visible after some period due to cache problems.

Now I am really confused. :). You said you already uploaded stuff to the
server, so you were able to run JOSM before, but now it sounds like you
have problems starting JOSM at all??
You don't need to compile JOSM, if you download the .jar - File. On a Mac,
you may be able to just double click on the file. This may not work with
Linux or Windows.
If you are using Linux and KDE, you can look at my setup-tutorial to
configure your System to run .jar files on a click:
If you are talking about launching JOSM pre-loaded with an xml file when
you click on it, I have bad news: It is currently not possible to launch
JOSM with a file opened.
Please be aware, that JOSM 1.0 is a bit buggy when handling files saved to
disk and reloaded. It is adviced to restart JOSM every time you saved a
file to disk.. :-(
