Including JSP Fragments

Hello All,
What I have understood by reading online is that JSP fragments are incomplete JSP pages saved with .jspf extn.

I tried to include one just .jspf file using:
<jsp:include page="/jspf/header.jspf" />
and, inside this JSP fragment I'm trying to read from the implicit request attr.

<html><head><title>Thanks for visiting <%= request.getParameter("fName") %> <%= request.getParameter("lName") %> </title></head><body>

But, this doesn't work, however if I change the extension from.jspf to .jsp it works...pls help...

The jspf files will not compile when they have the .jspf extension. If you are using tomcat add this so that tomcat's jsp "servlet" is invoked when the .jspf extension is used.


By the way... if you want scriplets to be evaluated use the include directive instead. But that means that you cant pass params to the included file like before. Either name your file .jsp to compile it, or associate the jspf extension in web.xml so that they are treated like JSPs, or use the include directive to compile scriplets et all.

Arrrghhhh so many choices !
