<script type="text/JavaScript">

var a = 1;
<% JavaFile.staticInt = a %>


The above example will cause a error stated that varible a is not found(no such symbol). Do anyone know how to solve this problem. Thanks

JSP is server side script, so you won't access Javascript variables. Try to figure out another way to get the needed data.

You have a fundamental misunderstanding of what JSP technology is all about.

Perhaps this article will be helpful.
