JSTL

The disadvantage of using the or the include directive is that we can only include the content or files which are the part of the current web application.

JSTL <c:import> 

        

The disadvantage of using the <jsp:include> or the include directive is that we can only include the content or files which are the part of the current web application. But by using the jstl <c:import> we can also include those contents or files which are not a part of the current web application but lying somewhere outside the web application. So, the jstl <c:import> is more useful than the <jsp:include> .

In the example given below we are going import one file which is in the current web application. This tag works like the <jsp: include> but it is much more flexible and powerful. In this program we have used only one attribute of <c:import> that is url in which we will specify the path of the file which we want to import in our file. 

 

The code of the program is given below:

 

<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" prefix="c" %>
<html>
<head>
<title>This page is imported</title>
</head>
<body>
<c:import url = "Date.jsp"/>
</body>
</html>

The output of the program is given below:
