When you see the acronym JSP on Snapchat, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook or TikTok, it’s a code word for Joint Strike Fighter. Joint Strike Fighter is an American-Canadian military aircraft developed by Boeing and Lockheed Martin. It’s a part of the Joint Advanced Development Program (JADP) and is meant to replace the older F/A-18E Super Hornet.

JSP stands for Java Server Pages, a server side scripting language that allows developers to create dynamic HTML web pages and deal with database. It’s an Object-Oriented programming language and is based on Servlet APIs. It’s a part of Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and is one of the most powerful web frameworks for developing enterprise applications.

A JSP page consists of HTML and XML markup and Java code. It is a combination of HTML tags, special JSP expressions and Servlet code that is executed on the server side. The resulting page is then served to the client. JSP also supports a variety of special tags to retrieve data from databases, access java bean components and share information between requests and pages.

Another key feature of JSP is the support of cookies, which are text files sent by a web server to a user’s browser. These are used to track the user’s online activity, including what pages he or she has visited and the contents of those pages. JSP also supports the Unified Expression Language (JSP EL) that is defined by the Java EE 5 specification.
