JSP Basics: Include Directive to Read Content at Compile Time
JSPs are compiled entities. Two include techniques read the included content before and after compilation. This tech-recipe describes the compiled include directive.
When including a file header.jsp with the following syntax, the contents of header.jsp are read into the JSP before it is compiled:
<%@ include file="header.jsp" %>
Subsequent changes to the header.jsp file will not be included in the JSP until the JSP is recompiled.
