Why jsp:include action is less efficient but more flexible as compared to jsp:include directive?

Hi Manoj, The <%@ include> directive is parsed during the translation phase and can specify only a "static" resource. Since it is compiled during translation time it is efficient. It is less flexible because it cannot handle "dynamic" content. The <jsp:include> Action is processed at request time (included inside _jspService() method) can include both "static" and "dynamic" contents(hence flexible). Since it is handled at request time it is less efficient solaiappan
