JSP & JavaScript
can I have server-side includes in my script?

 6:10 pm on Apr 23, 2002 (gmt 0)

I want to:

-use JavaScript to change the innerHTML of a div

-not have to have many lengthy strings in my JS

Can I just have the strings be external files included via JSP? For example, something that looks like:

function displayDetails ( topic ) {

document.dynamicDiv.innerHTML = "<%@include file="/include/" + topic + ".jsp %>";

uh, OK -- don't think it'll work. tried a buncha variations, but I think that no matter what, the server will need to process it again....

Include files (asp, jsp etc) are included on the server side (when the file is requested). All the client (browser) sees is the content of your includes in the place where your include tags where. View your source through the browser and you'll see what I mean.
