Hi All,

In my project, I have found a line in one of the jsp page,

<%@ include file="ssi/header1.ssi"%>


here header1.ssi file is having content like menu configuration.

so the question is what is ssi and how do i learn more about it quickly?

thanks all,

Whoever set that up was not following conventions. The ssi convention is conventionally used for "server side includes' using the Apache SSI mechanism. This statement, however, is a JSP include so the file type should be .jspf rather than .ssi.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
