i am using a frame in my jsp page myFrame.jsp and i am trying to include header.html and body.jsp in this. My jsp directory is home/WEB-INF/jsp and html directory is home/html I am using tomcat. But when i try to display the page myFrame.jsp the body.jsp page is not included, header.html page is included though. But when i put body.jsp outside of WEB-INF it works.

The WEB-INF directory, by design is not open to the web.

You'll need to either move your JSPs out of that directory, create servlet entries & mappings for them, or forward to them from a controller or page that has been mapped.
