Page Directive attribute - extends

This tutorial  contains description of extends attribute of page Directive.

extends Attribute :

This attribute specifies the super class of the JSP page's implementation servlet. It allows you to inherit a class that is super class of the class created by runtime compiling this JSP page. It is rarely used.

Syntax :

<%@ page extends="package.class" %>

By default HttpJspBase is the super class in translated servlet in Tomcat. Suppose you want another super class in place of HttpJspBase then use extends.
