HTML tags, XML tags, and text. The template data is returned to the client in the 
response or is processed by a component.

JSP file without being declared. The implicit objects are
request

JavaServer Pages
technology
An extensible Web technology that uses template data, custom elements, scripting 
languages, and server side Java objects to return dynamic content to a client.  Typically 
the template data is HTML or XML elements, and in many cases the client is a Web 
browser.
JSP container
A system level entity that provides life cycle management and runtime support for JSP 
and Servlet components.
JSP file
A text file that contains a JSP page. In the current version of the specification, the JSP 
file must have a 
.jsp
 extension.
JSP page
A text based document that uses fixed template data and JSP elements and describes 
how to process a 
request
 to create a 
response.
 The semantics of a JSP page are realized 
at runtime by a JSP page implementation class.
JSP page, front
A JSP page that receives an HTTP request directly from the client. It creates, updates, 
and/or accesses some server side data and then forwards the request to a presentation 
JSP page.
JSP page, presentation
A JSP page that is intended for presentation purposes only. It accesses and/or updates 
some server side data and incorporates fixed template data to create content that is sent 
to the client.
JSP page implementation
class
The Java programming language class, a Servlet, that is the runtime representation of a 
JSP page and which receives the 
request
 object and updates the 
response
 object. The 
page implementation class can use  the services provided by the JSP container, 
including both the Servlet and the JSP APIs.
JSP page implementation
object
The instance of the JSP page implementation class that receives the 
request
 object and 
updates the 
response
 object.
scripting element
A declaration, scriptlet, or expression, whose tag syntax is defined by the JSP 
specification, and whose content is written according to the scripting language used in 
the JSP page. The JSP specification describes the syntax and semantics for the case 
where the language page attribute is "java".
scriptlet
An scripting element containing any code fragment that is valid in the scripting 
language used in the JSP page.  The JSP specification describes what is a valid 
scriptlet for the case where the language page attribute is "java".  Syntactically a 
scriptlet is delimited by the <% and %> characters.
