What happens when we say : pageContext.include("somefile") in any normal JSP file, is this statement equivalent to include method of ServletContext, or of <jsp:include>, pls explain...
One more query : what does PageContext represent ? Whats its use ? why PageContext instance is automatically availablein JSp pages ?

Hi Sam,

What happens when we say : pageContext.include("somefile") in any normal JSP file, is this statement equivalent to include method of ServletContext, or of <jsp:include>, pls explain...
-> It is equivalent to <jsp:include page="somefile">. Besides, does not exist a method named include in ServletContext interface...
One more query : what does PageContext represent ? Whats its use ? why PageContext instance is automatically availablein JSp pages ?
-> PageContext is an implicit object that let us access all other implicit objects proggramatically. It is generally used in the development of custom tag libraries.
Regards,
