Hello. I have a very basic question about JSPs. Let's say that I have 2 JSPs, one in the directory:
/root/DIR1/page.jsp
and another in:
/root/DIR2/page.jsp
Note that the JSP pages have the exact same name, but are in different directories. How will the servlet engine/jvm know to return to the correct JSP if they have the same name and compiled at the same time?
Thanks,
Trent O.

I've discovered the answer to my question.
It is possible to have JSPs with the same name in different directories. The JSP engine uses the directory structure when naming the servlet classes. Classes in /root/DIR1/page.jsp would be in a package named root.DIR1, and /root/DIR2/page.jsp would be in root.DIR2. So internally they would be different.
