I need to include a header file in my jsp file. I want to make sure that this header file's content can be changed at any time and my jsp page should automatically load the up-to-date version without need to do anything (like restart server, remove .class file, etc). Should <#include file = "">
or <jsp:include page = ""/> suit this purpose ?
I myself assume maybe I should use the <jsp:include /> instead of the other one. Is that true ?

I think u were talking about <include file=" .." and not <#include ..>
U can <jsp:include for ur case so any changes made to the file is reflected immediately.

The JSP options for include are:

<%@ include page="foo" %>

<jsp:include page="foo" flush="true" />

Check this (very old) link for some more details
