[WEBINAR] Application Acceleration: Faster Performance for End Users


Definition - What does Scriptlet mean?

A scriptlet is a piece of software code that is used by a native Web page scripting language to perform a specific function or process. Scriptlets are primarily implemented in JavaServer Pages (JSP) and include variables, expressions or statements that are used only when requested by a certain client or process.

Techopedia explains Scriptlet

By default, a scriptlet supports Java code but also favors other languages. Scriptlet code is embedded in each JSP page. Generally, a scriptlet is downloaded on a client device/browser and executed whenever it is requested by the JSP engine or primary JSP page.

Primary scriptlet functions include:

  • Declaring variables or objects for use by JSP pages
  • Defining valid expressions
  • Adding workable code
However, the Web page’s HTML and text body are separate and excluded from the scriptlet code.
