What are JSP actions ?


JSP actions use constructs in XML syntax to control the behavior of the servlet engine. JSP actions are executed when a JSP page is requested. They can be dynamically inserted into a file, re-use JavaBeans components, forward the user to another page, or generate HTML for the Java plugin.Some of the available actions are listed below:

  • jsp:include – includes a file, when the JSP page is requested.
  • jsp:useBean – finds or instantiates a JavaBean.
  • jsp:setProperty – sets the property of a JavaBean.
  • jsp:getProperty – gets the property of a JavaBean.
  • jsp:forward – forwards the requester to a new page.
  • jsp:plugin – generates browser-specific code.
