Is there a reliable way to tell if a named JSP exists? I'd like to provide a default page for a missing JSP in one particular spot in an application. This is in a legacy jsp now:

I could see Class.forName() working if I could build up the compiled jsp name, but that sounds pretty yucky.

Wow! I have no idea what that is. But it's something I can Google and learn!

Those are examples of the JSTL (JSP Standard Tag Library).

Gotcha. I had never seen the import into a var syntax. Slick. Thanks again!

Very powerful mechanism, that.
