What are the sequences in which the JSP page is loaded? i.e. init(),load(),compilation, destroy?

The JSP lifecycle goes something like this...
1. Translated - to a servlet
2. Compiled - servlet is compiled
3. Loaded - loaded by a class loader
4. Instantiated - instance is created
5. Initialized - init() method invoked
6. Each user request is sent through the jspService() method
7. destroy() is called before being taken out of service.
Hope this helps,
