jsp:include

This will compile the included file and embed a call to the calling JSP. So you have two separate files here, the one that calls the include, and the included file.

<%@ include …%>

This will copy the contents of the included file into the calling JSP and compile the JSP as one. So you have one file here.

Remember everything between <%@ and %> are at the time of compilation only.

Agree with girionis, more you write more you know.
