Hi. I have a jsp page which I want to be displayed only after the page has finished loading. I tried putting the jsp include statement at the end of my html code but it still finished loading first. Is it possible to include a jsp only after the page has finished loading? How do you do it without using any third party javascript library?

Below is how my current html looks like. The problem with this is Test.jsp is displayed first before the body. I want the body to be displayed first before Test.jsp.

What I want to happen:

You cannot do this with any JSP mechanism; it requires JavaScript.

And while you don't need any 3rd-party library to use Ajax, doing this in jQuery is a single line, while doing it properly without a library will take dozens.

@Bear Bibeault: Thanks! Yes, I am thinking of including the JSP page using JavaScript. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to use any third party JavaScript library including JQuery. How do you include a JSP page using Javascript?

Break out some JavaScript resources and learn about the XMLHttpRequest object OR use an iframe.

As mentioned already you can use AJAX etc........

Or include the jsp like your first code...n then make the result visible only after page loading.... by calling this at the end of page "window.onload=call function tht sets properties of visiblility".

Hope this helps!!

@Eric Pascarello and Bharat Chowdary: Thanks for your help! Will try Bharat's suggestion to just set the visibility property of the element onload.
