One is a run-time include and the other is a translation-time include. This gets asked a lot so look through the forum history if you'd like more details.

Hello Bear Bibeault,
Thanks for the reply. Before my posting I searched with this question in this forum. But I didn't get the exact difference. So again I have posted this question. From your reply I know include directive is included at translation time and include action is included the source at request time.

I have another one doubt. Is it possible to retrive the parameter which is used in include page. If yes please give me some more hints.

Try searching this forum with: include action directive difference.
I just did and found thirteen threads that discuss this (some are better than others).

Your second question was straightforward enough that it would have been quicker to write a test app and run it for the answer than to wait for someone to respond here:

Page A:


Page B (the included page):

Name page A anything you want but page B must be named pageb.jsp.

I've just added an entry to the FAQ for this issue.
It's not comprehensive yet but it should be enough to answer most people's questions on the issue.

Thank you.

It looks like someone added the mention of the jspf convention.
Good catch.

Yeah, that was me. I also fixed a few typos. Hope you don't mind.

Not at all.
I was planning on going back and cleaning it up some more.
Thanks
