no, no... "include" is a directive to the JSP-processing engine. It puts the contents of the specified file instead. And you cannot insert a JSP-directive into your java-code. This is ok:
<%@ include file= ../../../usr/local/tomcat4/webapps/myfolder/myfile.jsp%>
   // your code here

To read the contents of a file do the following:

StringBuffer mycode = new StringBuffer();
BufferedReader fi = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("/usr/local/tomcat4/webapps/myfolder/myfile.jsp"));
String tmp = null;
while ((tmp = fi.readLine()) != null)
File aFile = new File(dir,"index.php");
FileWriter fw=new FileWriter(aFile);
PrintWriter pw=new PrintWriter(fw);


Good luck!
