I am trying to add a tag JSP for hands-on. But it is not working.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>First JSP</TITLE>
<META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="EditPlus">
<META NAME="Author" CONTENT="">
<META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="">
<META NAME="Description" CONTENT="">
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<FORM Action="LoginProcess.jsp">

Username : <input type="text" name="uname" value="<%= request.getParameter("uname")%>"/>

Password : <input type="password" name="password"/>


<INPUT type="submit" value="Login"/>

</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

I am saving this file as Login.html
If login fails it returns to the same page as a error page. It is supposed to show entered username in the Username box.

But is is showing as

Username : <%= request.getParameter("uname")%>
Password :

Now if i change the file name to Login.jsp it works fine!

Why is that so?

Please do reply!

Output is coming as not expected in .html file

Well, yeah, you do have to name your file with a ".jsp" extension to have JSP processing done on it.

But our tutor showed the same example in .html file!

Unfortunately he is not available for any comments!

So i was wondering how can we incorporate such jsp tags in .html file!

Unless you do a lot of serious fiddling with mappings and such, which I am sure that at this point is beyond the scope of your studies, you must use the .jsp file type. Otherwise, it's not a JSP.
