Is there a way whereby the values of JSP variables be assigned to the JavaScript variables and vice versa?

Have you tried this
Jsp variable in javascript:
<script language="javascript">
var javascriptVar = "<%=jspVar%>";
The otherway round is not possibile directly. Either you have to pass the javascript variable as a url to another jsp page or submit the page to another jsp page with javascript variable as a hidden field.

When you tried it did you assign a value to jspVar??

You might want to print out javascriptVar in the Javascript too!!

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at .
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register with a new name which meets the requirements.
I agree. Here's the link:
