This code

In my .jsp page I am trying to include a file from the server. I had no problem in the html portion but can't get it to work inside the java portion. I have tried a variety of methods. Here's the code and the error is below.:

<%
        try
        {

                String to       = <%@ include  file="/email_domain.html" %> ;
                String bcc              ="";    

                String from    = email;
                String cc      = "me@here.com";
                String subject = "Subject - Contact Information";

                mail.SendMailBean sendMail=new mail.SendMailBean();

                String smtpSvr = "localhost.localdomain";
                String result  = sendMail.send(from,to,cc,bcc,subject,message,smtpSvr);
                //out.println("result *** "+result);
                count1=count1+1;

        }catch(Exception e)
        {      
                        out.println(e.getMessage());
        }      
               
}
else
{

//out.println("Else");
response.sendRedirect("contact_us.jsp");
}
}
catch(Exception e)
{
out.println("Error in redirect "+ e.getMessage());
}
//end to admin

%>



Heres the error

Hi,
You cannot use page directive inside a scriplet. Instead you can read it from a properties file or open a socket connection and read it into a variable. I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish by doing this.

Didn't work. It could not resolve the variable "to". What would be the best way to read this variable from a properties file from within the scriplet?

dravidnsr - you are mistaken about how jsp pages are produced.

Right -- that's the way you use jsp:include.  You can't use jsp:include as the value of a variable in a JSP file.

mrcoffee,

We are taking over this site. This site was architected with a lot of redundant code. The code now needs to handle two different sites with distinct things like email domains. I am exchanging redundant code for includes so I can have 1 set of code for both sites.

What is the best way to read a properties file from within the jsp file?

The most common way to have a properties file is to put the values in the webapp web.xml file.  For example:
 <context-param>
   <param-name>SomeProperty</param-name>
   <param-value>abcde</param-value>
 </context-param>

Then in the jsp page, get the value like this:
someProperty= application.getInitParameter("SomeProperty");

If appropriate, the contents of the context-param could be HTML and you could incorporate it into your JSP page.  You'll have to convert HTML < and > into < and > because < and > have special meanings in xml files.

You can also create a properties file, and read it from your webapp.  Then you would use Java File read and probably the Properties class for reading the properties out of the file.  It's easier to use web.xml, but it's not that bad using a special .properties file.

Ah -- I wondered what the conversions on EE would do to that.  The greater than symbol has to be escaped into ampersand + gt + ;  in the web.xml file.
