I have come across an application where a JSP page has only methods. This page is included in a main JSP page and those methods are utilized in that page. My question is
"Will there be any performance improvement if I convert that JSP page into a java class and import it into the Main JSP page"
Any reply will be appreciated

I don't know about performance increase, but there may well be a maintenance and software design improvement. I strongly believe that each Java class should do one thing, and do it well. It looks like this is business functionality which has been lumped in with HTML generation in a JSP, so you should really separate it out so it can be reused in other contexts.
