JSP Samples

This is a collection of samples demonstrating the usage of different parts of the Java Server Pages (JSP) specification. Both JSP 2.0 and JSP 1.2 examples are presented below.

These examples will only work when these pages are being served by a servlet engine; of course, we recommend Tomcat. They will not work if you are viewing these pages via a "file://..." URL.

To navigate your way through the examples, the following icons will help:

Tip: For session scoped beans to work, the cookies must be enabled. This can be done using browser options.
