Generates an HTML frame.

<dsp:frame {page="page-spec" | src="page-spec[otherContext="context"] }/>



Sets the page’s path and file name in two ways:


Sets the page’s path and file name. The src attribute can access pages in another Web application if the current application’s web.xml atg.dynamo.contextPaths parameter is configured appropriately, or if the otherContext attribute specifies the correct context path. For more information, see Invoking Pages in Other Web Applications.


identifies a context path that is not specified in the application’s web.xml; valid with the src attribute.

Usage Notes

dsp:frame acts just like the HTML frame tag: you can use it to embed other pages or screen elements into a parent page. There is no corresponding frameset tag because you can use the standard HTML frameset tag. The DSP tag libraries tags let you access data and represent that data in your pages, but they do not handle page layout or presentation. The primary difference between the HTML frame tag and dsp:frame is that you pass page parameters and bean property values from a parent page to the child page.

Note: The dsp:frame tag uses the iclass attribute in place of the cascading stylesheet class attribute to avoid using a Java reserved word in Java code.


<dsp:frame page="en/brokerhome.jsp"/>

In this example, brokerhome.jsp is inserted into the parent page.
