jsp:include page="dynamic name.html"

I have pieces of html files in a folder and I want them included inside a jsp with a jsp:include directive. Preciselly, I have a number of files named file100.htm, file101.htm... and I receive an id as parameter when someone access my jsp page : id=101. Inside the jsp page I need to send some data to the client before AND after the inclusion statement so I would need something like this:
<jsp:include page="file<%=id%>.htm"/>

Do I have chances to manage somehow this problem ?
Thank you.

Attributes
page="{relativeURL | <%= expression %>}"

The relative URL that locates the file to be included, or an expression that evaluates to a String equivalent to the relative URL.


The relative URL looks like a pathname-it cannot contain a protocol name, port number, or domain name. The URL can be absolute or relative to the current JSP file. If it is absolute (beginning with a /), the pathname is resolved by your Web or application server.

you can use vars in dynamic includes:
<jsp:include page="<%= varname %>" flush="true" />

or

<jsp:include page="file<%=id%>.htm" flush="true" />

Static includes directives are preprocessed before scripting code executes so you cannot use variables
there.

for example if your file is called include.jsp

the call is:
include.jsp?id=101

your code will look like:

<% String id = request.getParameter("id");
   if ((id != null) and (id.length() > 0)) { %>
    <jsp:include page="file<%=id%>.htm" flush="true" />
<% }
   else { %>
    No ID parameter!!
<% } %>

no, wrong answer. I don't know what JSP engine you use but mine doesn't allow this. In the meantime I found the answer so I have to close this question with no winner.
Sorry about that but believe me I first tested the method you proposed and only after I posted the question here.

Anyway, the answer is:
<%pageContext.include("file" + id + ".html");%>

I found it by looking into the java code resulted after jsp file was proceessed.

that is what JSP include in converted into.. by the servlet engine!

I am not wrong.. look at Sun's documentation of JSP 1.1:
