what's the difference between server side include(SSI) and JSP include?

Barring, say, an Apache J2EE module, JSP requests get passed out of the HTTP server and over to the JSP server and then back in again (subject to config options). Anyway, SSI is done totally within the HTTP server, JSP include is done as part of the JSP process. Normally it would make more sense to have JSP's use their own include feature - it keeps everything in the same frame of reference.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
