Use Plugin in JSP

In this article I am describing an application showing how to use a <jsp:plugin>. It  is used to display an object, especially an applet or a Bean on the client browser. The <jsp:plugin> element plays or dispays an object, in the client Web browser, using a Java plug-in that is built in to the browser or downloaded from a specified URL. When the JSP file is translated and compiled and Java and sends back an HTML response to the client, the <jsp:plugin> element is replaced by either an <object> or <embed> element, according to the browser version.

To develop this application we use the following steps.

Step 1: Create a New Project.

In this step we select New Project option from file menu.
