Could any one pls clarify the out put of the following code?

Given this JSP snippet (Referred HF Servlets and JSP final Mock exam question 8)


Assuming A.b() is a valid call and returns test.

The answer for this code is given as <!--X-->test<!--test-->

Aslo pls clarify a scenario where if both html comment and JSP comments are included in the JSP. Are both the comments supressed in the output or will an html comment displayed?

When I executed the JSP with both html and JSP comments on Tomcat 5.0.x. (latest version) neither of the comments were displayed in the output. Am I correct in assuming that none of the comments (html and JSP)will be displayed in the output?

if we consider the following code snippet:

<%-- This is an XML comment -->
<!-- This is a HTML comment --->

Sorry for making the question lengthy

Thanks before hand

HTML comments are just template text and will become part of the response.
