Re: Best practice for managing jsp segments?
I have a web-based project (in Eclipse) with some jsp files and in the best
tradition I have modularized them so the top level jsp has many
<jsp:include> tags to include other parts. Now, I am using stylesheets
extensively and I'm having problems working out the best way to get the
stylesheets included in the page.
Plus, you're going to have common styles across all the sub pages, so
you need to have at least one common style sheet anyway.
I do not find big use of <jsp:include> to be a best practice. At all.
On most projects where it (or <%@include...%>) figured prominently, they only
served to fragment the layout, which is IMHO better apprehended when all in a
single artifact (at least, per frame, and exclusive of independent header or
footer blocks). Not only that, there are interactions wrt variable
declarations (in <jsp:useBean...> and the like) that can make maintenance a bitch.
I'd stay away from includes and modularize using backing logic beans, tag
libraries and the MVC pattern instead.
