The "Include" directive is used to include output from other sources such as HTML, JSP, etc. during page translation time, into the output of your JSP page. A Typical example is web sites that have the same header/footer on all pages. Instead of having the same HTML on all pages, that common information can be extracted into a file and then "included" in the resulting JSP at translation time.

Thanks Bosun but here is my real problem: with the include directive a programmer can either include .jsp, .html and .inc files types. Now I know what jsp and html files are but what type of a file is an inc file e.g. fileName.inc. Does it get translated, compiled or anything else? Could we convert a .inc file to a jsp without any problems.
