Sample JSP Java Server Page

This is an example of how to create a sample JSP page. JavaServer Pages (JSP) is a server-side programming technology that enables the creation of dynamic, platform-independent method for building Web-based applications. JSP have access to the entire family of Java APIs, including the JDBC API to access enterprise databases. Creating a JSP page implies that you should:

  • Create a jsp page that contains the <%code fragment%> scriptlet. It can contain any number of JAVA language statements, variable or method declarations, or expressions that are valid in the page scripting language.
  • Keep any html tags in the page outside the scriptlet.
  • Add JSP comment using the <%-- --%> tags.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:
