Server Side Includes (SSI)

SSI (Server Side Includes) are directives that are placed in HTML pages, and evaluated on the server while the pages are being served. They let you add dynamically generated content to an existing HTML page, without having to serve the entire page via a CGI program, or other dynamic technology.

It is a simple interpreted server-side scripting language,

used almost exclusively for the Web, and is embedded with a servlet tag

The most frequent use of SSI is to include the contents of one or more files into a Web page on a Web server. When a Web page is accessed by a browser, the Web server replaces the servlet tag in that Web page with the hyper text generated by the corresponding servlet.

Which is the most efficient (i.e. processing speed) way to create a server application that accesses a database: A Servlet using JDBC; a JSP page using a JavaBean to carry out the db access; or JSP combined with a Servlet? Are these my only choices?
