public interface JspPage
The JspPage interface describes the generic interaction that a JSP Page Implementation class must satisfy; pages that use the HTTP protocol are described by the HttpJspPage interface.
Two plus One Methods
The interface defines a protocol with 3 methods; only two of them: jspInit() and jspDestroy() are part of this interface as the signature of the third method: _jspService() depends on the specific protocol used and cannot be expressed in a generic way in Java.
A class implementing this interface is responsible for invoking the above methods at the appropriate time based on the corresponding Servlet-based method invocations.
The jspInit() and jspDestroy() methods can be defined by a JSP author, but the _jspService() method is defined automatically by the JSP processor based on the contents of the JSP page.
The _jspService()method corresponds to the body of the JSP page. This method is defined automatically by the JSP container and should never be defined by the JSP page author.
If a superclass is specified using the extends attribute, that superclass may choose to perform some actions in its service() method before or after calling the _jspService() method. See using the extends attribute in the JSP_Engine chapter of the JSP specification.
The specific signature depends on the protocol supported by the JSP page.
public void _jspService(ServletRequestSubtype request, ServletResponseSubtype response) throws ServletException, IOException;
The jspDestroy() method is invoked when the JSP page is about to be destroyed.
The jspInit() method is invoked when the JSP page is initialized.
