Chapter 10 - Java Server Pages (JSP)

Although this feature is preinstalled on our servers, it has to be enabled for each account. You need to submit a Technical Support Request Form and request that this feature be enabled for your account.

JavaServer Pages technology allows web developers and designers to easily develop and maintain dynamic web pages that leverage existing business systems. As part of the JavaTM technology family, JSP enables rapid development of web-based applications that are platform-independent. JSP separates user interfaces from content generation, enabling designers to change the overall page layout without altering the underlying dynamic content.

So what exactly is a JavaServer Page? In its basic form, a JSP page is simply an HTML web page that contains additional bits of code that execute application logic to generate dynamic content. This application logic may involve JavaBeansTM, JDBCTM objects, Enterprise Java BeansTM (EJB), and Remote Method Invocation (RMI) objects, all of which can be easily accessed from a JSP page. For example, a JSP page may contain HTML code that displays static text and graphics, as well as a method call to a JDBC object that accesses a database; when the page is displayed in a user's browser, it will contain both the static HTML content and dynamic information retrieved from the database.

The version of JSP that we have preconfigured on our servers is TomCat 3.2.1. We have configured this software on our servers as a convenience to our customers. We do not provide support in your use of JSP.

There are many resources and tutorials available across the web for JSP, a few of which we have provided below for your convenience.
