Standard syntax

<% @ include file= "desturl" %>

XML syntax

<JSP: directive. include file= "desturl" />

This tag is given to include the code of the destination web resource program to the source code of the JSP equivalent servlet program that belongs to the source JSP program. In this case, the destination web resource will not be executed separately, rather by using this concept, the code of the destination web resource program is included within the JSP' equivalent servlet program of the source JSP program.

The directive include tag does not perform output inclusion rather it performs code inclusion.

The <]SP: include> tag is given to include the output of the destination web resource program. The <]SP: include> tag is used for output, not the code of the destination web resource program. In this case, there are two separate ]SP equivalent servlet programs, which are generated and executed separately and the output generated for the destination web resource program aSp program) that is included in the output of the source web resource program which is also a ]SP program. So, we can say that <]SP: include>tag is a tag based alternate for "rd. include" of the servlet program. These action tags of ]SP can be used only with XML syntax as compared to the other tags of the JSP.

      BEGINNING OF SECOND JSP

      <br>

          NAME : <%=request.getParameter("name") %>

      <br>

          END OF SECOND JSP

      <br>

       </font>

      </center>

     </body>

    </html>

       <]SP: include> tag

Here, the output comes from First.jsp by including the output of Second.jsp inside its body.
