What is the main purpose of config implicit object in jsp?

As "servletConfig" facilitates to store name,value pairs(using <init-param> in web.xml for that particular servlet, is there any facility for jsp also?


I mean is there any facility to store name,value pairs in web.xml for using them in that particular jsp only?

pls clarify!!

Did you noticed whom Head First Series - JSP is dedicated.....???

anyway coming to point "Config allows initialization data to be passed to a JSP page's servlet."

For more information please refer More info on implicit objects

Okay Navat , did you see in web.xml that <servlet> has <jsp-file> sub-element to it?. (Normally one mentions a <servlet-class> instead of jsp file)

For example:


Now in the above case , you can see how the init-param have been given to the JSP - Also you can see that settings like load-on-startup have been used for the JSP file - so that it is translated and compiled and loaded before any request has been made for it.

-----

Fuzail , config implicit object in JSP page is reference to ServletConfig instance. Whereas the initParam implicit EL object is a Map of context initialization paramateres/values. I think you mixed the two

Ah and for humor let me quote the "dedicated to" in HFJS.


This book is dedicated to whoever decided that the EL implicit object for a context param should be named initParam

Shivani
