In JSP, there are three fuctions init,destroy and service The first two init(), destroy() methods can be handled by the page authors. But not the last one service() method why? Thanks in advance.

Hi Somasundaram, The three functions which u were talking about are known as life cycle methods of jsp page. You use the jspInit method to initialize any variables, and you use the jspDestroy method to free the resources ur jsp using. The service method is important and it is automatically generated by the jspcompiler. The service method contains all the translated code (The html,Scriptles,Directives e.t.c). So if u try to overwrite it, then ur program will not behave like what ur expecting from it. I think u find this info useful. Bye Loke.
