## What is the difference between include directive and include action?

### Solution

 Include directive Include action Resource included by include directive is loaded during jsp translation time. Resource included by include action is loaded during request/run time. Any change on included resource will not be visible in case of include directive until jsp file compiles again. While in case of include action any change in included resource will be visible in next request. Syntax of Include directive: <%@ include file="file_name" %> Syntax of Include action: When using include action tag we can also pass the parameters to the included page by using param action tag In case of include directive it is not possible.
