Comments in JSP Page

In this example we shall show you how to add comments in a 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. To add comments in a JSP page one should perform the following steps:

  • Create a jsp page that begins with 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.
  • Add HTML comments using the <!-- --> tags.
  • You can add scriptlet code inside the comments, as shown below:


<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.Date"%>
