    Talking Using navigation menus to display dynamic content.

    Hi folks,
    I have created a a simple hobby site about Nintendo (see screenshot) and I am currently converting it to .jsp. I have divided the index page into effectively five regions, including one horizontal navigation bar, one vertical navigation bar and one main section. I have done this by effectively creating five different .jspf files for each region i.e. hornav,vertnav & main.
    Rather than reload the static content, I would like it so that when users click on the horizontal or vertical navigation buttons (links), only the main.jspf changes. From my conversion from html to .jsp, I realise its redundant creating an identical pages that change in only one section. I should mention the horizontal and navigation buttons are purely html and css with hyperlinks.
    I was thinking about using the JSTL c select statement eqivalent in the hornav.jspf and vertnav.jspf respectively but I am not too sure how to organise the coding. I should also mention when the button is clicked on the hornav.jspf or vertnav.jspf, it will need to trigger the update on the main.jspf. I'm open to suggestions on how to resolve this issue.
    Cheers,
    Switcha.

    Hi I am not so sure but as per your problem you can solve it as follows

    Look at your Main.jsp page It should contains Different HTML or JSP Tags

    What you have to do is simply devide your JSP Page into two part (like head.jsp and tail.jsp) in such a way that your menu contents what will not change will come under these two pages and all other variable things which will change for each and every page should come in between it.

    <Import head.jsp>

    Put your body contents which will change for each page, All the tags like <HTML start><Head> <Body Start> etc will come in Head.jsp

    and <Body End> <HTML End > will come in tail.jsp

    <Import Tail.jsp>

    Just try this and let me know if any problem

    Hi,
    thanks for your response . I have structured the Index.jsp to be main(host) file that contains include references to the Header.jspx, HorizontalNav.jspf,VerticalNav.jspf, Main.jspx and Footer.jspf. What I would like to do is organise the links in the HorizontalNav.jspf + VerticalNav.jspf to change only the content in the main.jspf. Main.jspf is the section of the page that changes the most. I am thinking about re-organising my site even though its like five pages.
