Mixing Scriptlet and HTML

In this section, we will discuss about  Scriptlet and Html together with an example. Suppose you have to generate a table in HTML.  This is a common operation, and you may want to generate a table from a SQL table, or from the lines of a file.  But to keep our example simple, we will generate a table containing the numbers from 1 to 10.  Not very useful, but it will show you the technique  :



for ( int i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {




<TD><%= i+1 %></TD>







The important things to notice are how the %> and <% characters appear in the middle of the "for" loop, to let you drop back into HTML and then to come back to the scriptlet.

The concepts are simple here -- as you can see, you can drop out of the scriptlets, write normal HTML, and get back into the scriptlet.  Any control expressions such as a "while" or a "for" loop or an "if" expression will control the HTML also.  If the HTML is inside a loop, it will be emitted once for each iteration of the loop.
