is there such a thing as too many include files
Posted on 2009-04-27
Hi, I am building the file structure for our ap. I would like to place everything into include files as to eliminate redundancies. We have a java ap and are interfacing with jsp pages. Most of our includes are jsp, js, and css files.
I am nervous about placing too many include files in the structure as, the way I understand it, that causes a http request for each file and can have an effect on performance. What is the most efficient way to call these include files and should I worry about having too many?
I have searched this out on the net and am only finding references between dynamic include calls vs static. Nothing about how it affects performance and what it's capacities are.
