You can't write a method inside a scriptlet. Whatever you write in a scriptelt goes inside the service method when the JSP code is translated to a servlet. So a method inside a scriptlet would mean a method inside the service method and that would be totally wrong as there is no concept of inner methods in Java.

if u want to write method inside a JSP, it must be in a declaration and not a scriptlet

   //      method goes here
