How to strip whitespace from jsp output

How trimDirectiveWhitespaces works

It removes spaces created by JSP tags. It will not remove spaces in body.

<%@ page trimDirectiveWhitespaces="false"%>
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
	pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
	Server started -
	<%=System.currentTimeMillis()+"                     " + "-space"%>
</body>
</html>

trimDirectiveWhitespaces=”false”

trimDirectiveWhitespaces=”true”;
