JSP - General

HTML comment that is sent to the client but not displayed by the browser.
<!-- Blah -->

Developer comment that is not sent to the client
<%-- Blah --%>

Expression that is evaluated and sent to the client each time the page is requested:
<%= Java Value %>
Current time: <%= new java.util.Date() %>
Your hostname: <%= request.getRemoteHost() %>

Statement or statements that are executed each time the page is requested:
<% Java Statement %>

String queryData = request.getQueryString();
out.println("Attached GET data: " + queryData);

Field or method that becomes part of class definition when page is translated into a servlet:

<%! Field Definition %>
<%! Method Definition %>

private int accessCount = 0;
private String randomHeading() {
return("<H2>" + Math.random() + "</H2>");

Directive: A JSP directive affects the overall structure of the servlet that results from the JSP page.  There are three main types of directives: page , include and taglib.

<%@ directive att="val" %>
<%@ page import="package.class1,...,package.classN" %>
is <  import="package.class1,...,package.classN" />

<%@ page contentType="application/" %>
<%@ page contentType="someMimeType; charset=someCharacterSet" %>

e.g. (excel.jsp)
First Last Email Address
Marty Hall
Larry Brown
Steve Balmer
Scott McNealy
<%@ page contentType="application/" %>
<%-- There are tabs, not spaces, between columns. --%>

<%@ page session="true" %> <%-- Default --%>

<%@ page isErrorPage="true" %>
<%@ page isErrorPage="false" %> <%-- Default --%>

Include: JSP has three main capabilities for including external pieces into a JSP document:
. the jsp:include action: lets you include the output of a page at request time

<jsp:include page="/fragments/StandardHeading.jsp">
<jsp:param name="bgColor" value="YELLOW" />

.the include directive: lets you insert jsp code into the main page before that main page is translated into a servlet.
<%@ include file="Relative URL" %> is
<jsp:directive.include file="..." />

.the jsp:plugin action: used to insert applets that use tha java plug-in into JSP pages.

<jsp:plugin type="applet"
width="475" height="350">
<jsp:param name="PARAM1" value="VALUE1" />
<jsp:param name="PARAM2" value="VALUE2" />

Shorthand JSP expression
${ EL Expression }

Invocation of custom tag


predefined Variables:
.request, the HttpServletRequest
.response, the HttpServletResponse
.session, the HttpSession associated with the request
. out, the Write(a buffered version of type JspWriter) used to send output to the client
.application, the ServletContext. This is a data structure shared by all servlets and JSP pages in the Web application and is good for storing shared data.
.config: This variable is the servletconfig object for this page. In principle, you can use it to read initialization parameters.
.pagecontext: JSP introduced a class Called Pagecontext to give a single point to access to many of the page attributes. The PageContext class has methods getRequest,getResponse,getOut,getSession, and so forth.
.page, This variable is simply a synonym for this and is not very useful.

Stretch a row if data overflows in jasper reports

It is very common that some columns of the report need to stretch to show all the content in that column. But  if you just specify the property " stretch with overflow' to that column(we called text field in jasper report world) , it will just stretch that column and won't change other columns, so the row could be ridiculous. Haven't find the solution from internet yet. So I just review the properties in iReport one by one and find two useful properties(the bold highlighted in example below) which resolve the problems.   example:
<band height="20" splitType="Stretch"> <textField isStretchWithOverflow="true" pattern="" isBlankWhenNull="true"> <reportElement stretchType="RelativeToTallestObject" mode="Opaque" x="192" y="0" width="183" height="20"/> <box leftPadding="2"> <pen lineWidth="0.25"/> …

Live - solving the jasper report out of memory and high cpu usage problems

I still can not find the solution. So I summary all the things and tell my boss about it. If any one knows the solution, please let me know.

Symptom: 1.The JVM became Out of memory when creating big consumption report 2.Those JRTemplateElement-instances is still there occupied even if I logged out the system
Reason:         1. There is a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances cached in the memory 2.The clearobjects() method in ReportThread class has not been triggered when logging out
Action I tried:      About the Virtualizer: 1.Replacing the JRSwapFileVirtualizer with JRFileVirtualizer 2.Not use any FileVirtualizer for cache the report in the hard disk Result: The japserreport still creating the a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances in the memory     About the work around below,      I tried: item 3(in below work around list) – result: it helps to reduce  the size of the JRTemplateElement Object                Item 4,5 – result : it helps a lot to reduce the number of  JRTemplateE…
