There are various standard programming languages like C, C++, Java etc. that supports control statements. On the basis of that, JSP also follows the same methodology. Let’s study the flow of control statements in Java Server Pages. Here, are some conditional statements about which we will discuss: –

  • if else
  • for loop
  • while loop
  • switch


JSP allows to use IF ELSE conditional statement as a programming logic of scriptlet tag. Apart from that, IF can also be used in many other ways like nested IF or standalone IF. Here is a simple example of IF ELSE statement.
