Page tag for File include

I want to include JSP file in the main JSP using this tag, the problem is I get a translation error at compilation time when using a String variable containing the file name instead of using explicit physical file name.
is ther any solution for this problem to get a generic page that can includes many files according to parameter sent from the servlet ?
this works perfectly :
<%@ include file="file_name.jsp" %>
this generates JSP translate not found :
<%@ include file=" <%= variable_name %>" %>

You can not user real time expressions with the include file command, you will have to use the following:
<jsp:include page="<%=variable_name%>" />
