Hi there,

I'd like to build a web-app using tomcat. To avoid html code duplication, I would like to be able to import common html code from other files,

e.g. index.html would look like:

<html>
<head>
... import common tags from a file "head.xyz", passing a parameter
$title...
</head>
<body>
... import a navigation banner code from "nav.xyz"
<p> ...</p>
</body>
</html>

What is the best way of achieving this using tomcat? Server-side includes? Or something smart using Velocity/ JSP?

I had envisaged using Velocity for my dynamic pages, but it seems an overkill solution for the static content. Also, I'm not sure how to configure tomcat to use some particular servlet for the default page of an app.

Thanks for any tips,

best wishes

Andy Cooke

JSP custom actions (formerly known as "custom tags").
