JavaServer Pages. A server-side technology, JavaServer pages are an extension to the Java servlet technology that was developed by Sun. JSPs have dynamic scripting capability that works in tandem with HTML code, separating the page logic from the static elements -- the actual design and display of the page. Embedded in the HTML page, the Java source code and its extensions help make the HTML more functional, being used in dynamic database queries, for example. JSPs are not restricted to any specific platform or server.

Java Server Pages (JSP) is a technology that lets you mix regular, static HTML with dynamically-generated HTML. Many Web pages that are built by CGI programs are mostly static, with the dynamic part limited to a few small locations. But most CGI variations, including servlets, make you generate the entire page via your program, even though most of it is always the same. JSP lets you create the two parts separately.

Yes, a JSP is a perfect example of combination of static and dynamic contents generated at runtime. An HTML designer and a java programmer can work in tandem, with a greater levearage provided to their individual skills. Applying a more greater level of abstraction the maximum amout of page logic can be transfered to the java beans, making the jsp virtually code free. The logic can then be referenced in the page using the html like tags for the java bean. 
Further we can make the page even text free using struts tiles framework. The result is an ideal jsp having tags for both dynamic JAVA page logic and static presentation HTML logic

Even though the servlets provide better performance most of the developers using servlet technology tend to mix the presentation logic and the business logic.This increases the cost of maintaining the project.

jsp is server-side technology,which combines both- 
application logic(java code) and presentation logic(HTML code),so that HTML designers and java code devlopers can work in tandom(simultaniously) by providing there max skills on the application,JSP's reduces javacode by introducing customtags moreover no recompilation problems when code needs to be modified.

Java Server Pages are used to  create web applications that generate dynamic content.JSP are extensions to Servlet Technology and teh goal of jsp is to separate the Presentation Logic from Business logic.

Jsp pages and its related fiels are called Translation Unit.When ever an request comes from teh bowser for the first time the jsp page is compiled to servlet by jsp engine.

Java Server Pages (JSP) is a platform independent presentation layer technology that comes with SUN s J2EE platform. JSPs are normal HTML pages with Java code pieces embedded in them. JSP pages are saved to *.jsp files. A JSP compiler is used in the background to generate a Servlet from the JSP page.

Java Server Page would be converted into a work horse servlet. So the first time jsp take some time for loading. It's because of the whole page would be converted into servelet and compiled and class file would be created.

Jsp is content generator.Using the scripting tags it generates content. when the jsp engine(jsp container)  loads the jsp the code for the servlet automatically generated to convet jsp into servlet.This is translation time.

            Jsp Technology which allows us to write pages which are part of the web application.Jsp Pages are not send to the client as it is.The page would get process at the server side and the result of the processing is sent to the client .Since the processing is occures at the server side and hence the name server page.

jsp stands for java server pages.

  • in servlet technlogy business logic and presentation logic is combined to separte out the business logic from presentation logic sun soft designed jsp .
  • jsp similar to html but in html we cannot embeded java code but we can in jsp.
  • it's same as servlet , After saving jsp page as .jsp extension whenever a request is sent to the jsp page first time it will converted into servlet there after  all issues will be treated as servlet.
  • only first time it will converted into servlet next time will not be converted into servlet i.e these phase called as translation phase.
  • According to performance servlet is better performance compare to jsp i.e only first time.
  • In project so many developers strong with html and servlet so we  can assign jsp for html designers and servlet for technical persons

Hi, JSP is a server side scripting language. It encapsulates the java code with the html code. It is simpler and easier to develop application with JSP than servlet or any othere.
