Hai all, Could someone please help me with the code(from HFSJ) below:


JSP that does the include (contact.jsp)



The included header that uses the new param ("header.jsp")



<em> <strong> ${param.subtitle} </strong> </em>



The above example as given in the book,tries to set the subtitle based on the settings in the header.jsp.But it gets the value from "contact.jsp"

Are we using jsp:param just to set how they appear in the "contact.jsp".Is my understanding correct?

Please explain.

Thank you,Vinal

You use jsp:param with jsp:include and jsp:forward to add extra parameters to the servlet request. Those extra parameters are only available in the included / forwarded servlet / JSP page; after the jsp:include / jsp:forward end tag the parameters are no longer there.
