Description of the hello.jsp

The hello.jsp page is a static HTML page embedded with a JSP command. A JSP command is an XML-like snippet that encapsulates logic that dynamically generates content within the static HTML. JSP commands can include directives, declarations, expressions, actions, and blocks of Java code, all enclosed within angle-brackets, like XML elements. At compile-time, the JSP is converted into a servlet, which is what tc Runtime instance actually executes at runtime.

The hello.jsp includes the following simple JSP directive:

<%= new String("Hello!") %>

This JSP directive simply prints out a message to the client (browser): Hello!
