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,
