Static includes are evaluated at translation time, so execution-time expressions cannot be used.

Bear,

Thanks for the response. But this is what i am trying to do. The path for the file is generated on the server side.


I will get this info on jsp

.
How can i use the filePath in the include directive or jsp:include. If this is not possible what can be other alternatives ?

Please Help.

thanks

You'll be able to use an expression in an include action, but not a directive.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
