Hello all,
How to get the bean instance of JSP in servlet?
I have a x.jsp, there are 3 input fields.
I have a xbean.java for the above input form of the x.jsp.
jsp use bean tag is used in this x.jsp. set property * is used to populate all the fields that the user has entered in this input form in the bean(which the jsp engine does).
How to get this xbean instance in the servlet for processing? so that i can call get methods of this xbean to get the user input and process.
Thanks in advance

Hi,
Depending on context of the bean, just retrieve attribute with name same as bean id used in JSP and cast it to the bean class and you are ready to use it.

The scope of the bean u have declared in the jsp decides how u can fetch it in the servlet.
if the scope is request and the id of bean is "xBean" u can retrive it using
(TypeCast)request.getAttribute("xBean");
or if the scope of bean is session in jsp the same can be retrived from
(TypeCast)session.getAttribute("xBean");
