Stands for "Jakarta Server Pages," (formerly Java Server Pages).
JSP is a technology developed by Sun Microsystems for creating dynamic webpages. JSP allows developers to embed Java code within an HTML page, creating a mix of static content and dynamic behavior. JSP is similar to other server-side programming and scripting terminologies like ASP and PHP.
Web developers typically use JSP for web applications that require server-side rendering of dynamic content. JSP pages can contain a mix of static HTML content and Java code, which can accept input from a user or pull information from a database. When the user submits a form or other triggering action, the Java code is executed by the web server and compiled into a small application known as a servlet. The server processes input from the user or database, generates a new HTML page using the generated output, and sends it to the user.
