Hi all,
I am trying to dynamically include files in my JSP. Following is what i am trying to do:
I have an array which has name of files.
<%
sarray[1] = "file1.html";
sarray[2] = "file2.html";
sarray[3] = "file3.html";
%>
Using the for loop
<%
for(int i=1; i<4; i++)
{
%>
<%@include file = "<%=sarray[i]%>" %>
<%}%>
I am just looping through and including the files, but tomcat gives an error saying File "" not found. The file is the same directory as my JSP. It doesnt work. Please let me know what is wrong here.
I wanted to have all the html files in a seperate directory and include using the full path name like C:\webapps\soe\file1.html , but it didnt work, so i copied the html files in the same directory and tried still the same error. please let me know a solution to this.

Thanks
Priyha
