In my .jsp file I included a JS file 'abc.js'. This .js file has embedded java code to retrieve data value from a java class. For some reason Tomcat does not like the embedded java code. I was told that I have to change the Tomcat configuraiton to allow pasrsing Java inside the JSP .js file. Can someone tell me how do I configure Tomcat to do that?
document.getElementById("update_field" ).style.display = "<%=student.getUpdateField()%>";
Just in case enough people haven't said it already, a ".js" file is not a ".jsp" file. So, byt definition, it cannot contain Java code.
In any event, J2EE long passed the stage where it was expected to be a high-priced replacement for IIS ASPs, and the very thought of having View components (JSPs) contain executable (Java) code sets off a lot of people's blood pressure monitors. We've been there (long ago), done that (when we had no alternatives) and found better ways.
