Hi there,
I am having a problem with including files. I used
<%@ include file="filename" %>
which works great, but the problem is that this include is a static include, which means that any changes to the included files wouldn't be reflected on the actual jsp file util that jsp file changes. I also used this include:
<jsp:include page="/../filename" flush="true">
<jsp aram name="parametername" value="1"/>
which works great, any changes made to the included file are reflected on the jsp page.
But here is my problem: The first include (since it is static) lets me access any variables on the included file from the jsp page. For example on my jsp page I can do this: out.write(var1); Where var1 is a variable in the included file. The second include doesn't allow me to do that. So is there any way to be able to access variables on the inluded file directly from my jsp page? ( I mean on the second include).
If anyone can help I would be greatful and thanks in advance.
