Can I write a method in a jsp page
I know that jspInit() and jspDestroy() methods can be written in a jsp file. My question is can I write some more methods in the same jsp file and if I can write those methods then how can I call them?

declaration is used like a scriptlet to embed code in a JSP, but code embedded by
a declaration appears outside of the _jspService() method. For this reason code
embedded in a declaration can be used to declare new methods and global class
variables, but caution should be taken because code in a declaration is not
thread-safe, unless made so by the writer of that code.

You can call that method or use that instance variable in your jsp page using scriplets. now the call would be inside your _jspService() method. But again that method or variable would not be thread-safe, as Babar mentioned in his post.


Thanks babar and adeeel. I got my answer. Thank you very much.
