What is JSP?

     JavaServer Pages (JSP) is a server-side programming technology that enables the creation of dynamic web pages and applications. This is accomplished by embedding Java code into HTML, XML, DHTML, or other document types. When a client such as a web browser makes a request to the Java application container, which is typically a web server, the static page is converted behind the scenes, and displayed as dynamic content to the viewer. It has been speculated that JSP was released to compete with PHP, a commonly used open-source programming language. s for C++ developers.

Usage of JSP:-

  • JSP is widely used for developing dynamic web sites.
  • JSP is used for creating database driven web applications because it provides superior server side scripting support.
