I want to put an If statement into my JSP page that shows/doesn't show parts of the output based on the title of the page.

Any ideas on how the syntax for this would be?

Try this;
<%
if(condition){%>
Will show this part if condition is true
<%}%>
and so on.

> output based on the title of the page.

I assume you know the title of the page when you build the JSP?

ie:

<%
    String title = "New page" ;
%>
<html>
    <head>
        <title><%= title %></title>
...

then do as raj3060 suggests :-)

I guess he/she is trying to read the title of the page from somewhere and then when particular page we are talking about to put the if condition reads that title, and based on the title want to hide/show stuff on the page, and in that case you need to pass the "title" of the page and then read it in the to be displayed page, and decide what you want to show.

Ok, first I need to declare what the page name is and output the string into the title tags:

<% String title = "CMAT" ; %>
<html>
<head>
<title><%= title %></title>

Then state the condition, based on the title name:

<% if(condition){ %>
Will show this part if condition is true
<%}%>

My question now, is what should the syntax for the condition be?

<% if( title.equals( "CMAT" ){ %>
   Title Equals CMAT
<%}%>

Sorry:

 <% if( title.equals( "CMAT" ) ) { %>
   Title Equals CMAT
<%}%>

I missed a bracket :-/

I am increasing the points to 100, and splitting them between both you guys, as both suggestions were used.
Thanks for the work and time!
