Calling Java APIs from JSP
Posted on 2004-08-24
I have available to me multiple Java APIs that I will be using to load and extract data from a XML file. I need to access these Java APIs from a JSP page. What is the best way, from a JSP page, to access Java APIs?
(The XML data is used to build a menu tree. I am using Eclipse, and the myEclipse plugin.)
As an aside, I'm not really asking for a lot of details and examples, (even though that would be VERY nice.) I've read a lot (beans vs EJB vs embedded code, etc) and can't really pick out the best tools and approach. If you can recommend an approach, I think it will save me from, say, implementing an approach only to find hours later some serious drawbacks!
