Hello I have a page with a nav section on the left. I apply a template to the page so that header footer and navigation section is steady. Is it possible to include pages i the main content area based on what links is pressed. Thanks kritro

Yes, but not using JSP technology. JSP sends the HTML to the browser. What happens after that is the domain of HTML and Javascript.

This topic has been appropriately moved.

You can either make the content area an iframe and load new "sub-pages" into it as the nav bar is clicked upon, or you can use Ajax to fetch the new content from the server and replace the content area with the newly retrieved content.

In the first scenario you have two separate pages. In the latter, only one page (that can share script -- not a trival advantage).

I find myself using the Ajax approach almost exclusively these days.
