A servlet in a jsp include

Lets say I have a jsp file like the following:
<table cellspacing="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td valign="top" width="80%">
<jsp:include page="<%= next_page %>" flush="true" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td valign="top" >
<jsp:include page="<%= another_page %>" flush="true" />
</td>
</tr>
</table>
************************************
This works fine if both of the pages are jsp pages. However in my situation the last include will be jsp not actually in a public web folder. Instead it will be on the same computer but I have a servlet that will display the page. The servlet works fine alone, but tryng to use it in the include gives me:
Exception: java.lang.IllegalStateException: setting buffer after writing to the writer.............
And so on and so forth. Is there any hope for this?

HI,
When you use the <jsp:include> tag, the buffer is flushed before invoking the the included page - servlet in this case.
After this happens headers can't be set nor will <jsp:forward> work.
Is this the cause of your problem??
Try changing to the include directive instead to test.
<%@include file="filename" %>

Hope that helps,
