Hello, currently I'm wrestling with the following problem. I want to include a certain file in a JSP and I'm receiving the filename to be included from the request as a parameter.
This is my code so far.
----------------------
<%-- Include dynamical path settings --%>
<% java.lang.String envJsp=request.getParameter("envJsp");%>
<%@ include file="<%=envJsp%>" %>
<%-- End Include dynamical path settings --%>
----------------------
This results in the following error:
----------------------
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Bad file argument to include
java.lang.Throwable(java.lang.String)
java.lang.Exception(java.lang.String)
javax.servlet.ServletException(java.lang.String)
org.apache.jasper.JasperException(java.lang.String)
void org.apache.jasper.compiler.JspParseEventListener.handleDirective(java.lang.String, org.apache.jasper.compiler.Mark, org.apache.jasper.compiler.Mark, java.util.Hashtable)
void org.apache.jasper.compiler.DelegatingListener.handleDirective(java.lang.String, org.apache.jasper.compiler.Mark, org.apache.jasper.compiler.Mark, java.util.Hashtable)
boolean org.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser$Directive.accept(org.apache.jasper.compiler.ParseEventListener, org.apache.jasper.compiler.JspReader, org.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser)
void org.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser.parse(java.lang.String, java.lang.Class [])
void org.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser.parse(java.lang.String)
void org.apache.jasper.compiler.Parser.parse()
boolean org.apache.jasper.compiler.Compiler.compile()
----------------------
Has anyone experience with this, or isnt it possible ate all perhaps???
All suggestions are more than welcom.
Greeetins, Johan

This is not possible with the include directive. The directive gets evalauted when the servlet for the JSP is being constructed -- long before the Java code on the page gets executed.
You can use a variable path with the <jsp:include/> tag, which gets evaluated at run time.
hth,
