So does this make it a thin client or a thick client?

I'm making a website where some pages contains code in <%%> tags, some pages contain code that directly access a database via jdbc drivers. I'm confused about this, is this run on the server or the client machine? Does this kind of implementation make the client running it a thin or fat client? and also are these classed as applets?

Everything to do with Java, Servlets, and JSP runs on the server.

Applets are a completely different concept.

And the use of <% %> to put Java code into a JSP is a practice that has been discredited for over 8 years.

Thin and thick clients aren't generally terms used to describe web apps, at least in my experience. They're definitely not applets, which are a specific Java technology. *All* Java in JSPs is run on the server side, *before* it's sent to the browser.

Note that JSPs should *very* rarely (if ever) contain Java--that's an out-dated programming practice and should be avoided whenever possible (and it always is).
