What is an .JSP file?

.JSP is Java Server Page

A JSP file is a server-generated web page. It is similar to an .ASP or .PHP file, but contains Java code instead of ActiveX or PHP. The code is parsed by the web server, which generates HTML that is sent to the user's computer.

Since the Java code is parsed on the web server, the end user never sees the JSP code, but only the HTML generated by the Java code in the page. JSP pages can be edited using a web development program or basic text editor.

How to solve problems with JSP files

  • Associate the JSP file extension with the correct application. On :
    Windows: Right click on any JSP file and then click "Open with" > "Choose another app". Now select another program and check the box "Always use this app to open *.JSP files". Mac: Right click (or Ctrl-click) the JSP file, then click "Open with" > "Other...". Then choose another program and check the "Always Open With" box. Linux: Right click on the file, and select "Open with" and choose another program. iPhone: Tap the file. If you do not see an app to open the file, then tap Share "Share" and choose an app. Alternatively, save the file. Then open the Files app Files app. There long-press on the file, then release your finger. You will see a black menu bar. Then tap "Share" and select an app. Android: Tap the Settings icon on your smartphone, then tap on the Apps section. There tap the Options icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen to change the default apps.
  • Update your software that should actually open .JSP is Java Server Page. Because only the current version supports the latest JSP file format. Search, therefore, e.g. on the Oracle manufacturer website after an available .JSP is Java Server Page update.
  • To make sure that your JSP file is not corrupted or virus-infected, get the file again and scan it with antivirus software.
