I am preparing for SCWCD exam.
Can some one explain to me in detail about Translation time and Request time concepts.
<JSP:include> :- Invoked at Request time action
<@include > :- Invoked at Translation Time
Can someone explain to me about the difference between Request time and Tranlation time with respect to <@JSP: include> and <@include>
Thanks in advance !!!

<jsp:include.../> invoked at request time means that if file A.jsp calls file B.jsp using <jsp:include.../>. File A.jsp is translated and converted into Servlet; same applies to file B.jsp, but at request time the template generated by the servlet of B is included onto the output of A dynamically. However in <%@ include.../> the content of file B(which is the raw code) is included onto file A before it is translated to servlet and this is done in a static manner.
I agree. Here's the link:
