Include in Servlets

I have many JSP pages. Each page includes a Login Validation JSP page that would verify the user's idle time. If the user is idle for more than 5 minutes, he will be forced to login again.
I have a Servlet, that is called from one of the JSP's. How can the Login Validation JSP page be included in the Servlet?
These are the files that I have
A.JSP, LoginValidate.JSP and Servlet1
<%@include file = "LoginValidate.jsp"%>
How can the same jsp page be included in Servlet1?
Any suggestions please.

you can use the requestdispatcher to include any jsp along with the request and response object as below:
getServletConfig().getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/directory/jspname that you want to include").include(request,response);
I agree. Here's the link:
