I am typically an ASP.NET programmer, and I am familiar with ASP masterpages.
Because, I also know Java, I was handed a JSP project.
I am looking for an equivalent to <asp:Content> whereby I can wrap multiple lines of code/HTML between the open and close tag; for example like so:
However, the closest thing I found is <jsp:param name="param_title" value="param_value" /> , but this is an inconvient solution because the param needs to be inclosed within double quotes, whereby multiple lines of code/HTML will need be a series of concatinated strings.
It looks like asp:content is used to include a piece of a web page located elsewhere. (I state this because I don't know ASP and found that out based on two minutes of searching. If my understanding is flawed, you'll know.)
JSP has includes where you can include a jspf (JSP Fragment). The jspf is a separate file containing part of a JSP. Your few lines could go in there.
Masterpages looks like a templating technology where you specify the master layout once and what goes in each spot elsewhere. Apache has a project called Tiles which does this.
