Hi all I was trying to do something like this,

< html:form action="/test" <
String passedValue = "Test Value";
<html:button property="page" value="click here" on click="showValue('<%=passedValue %<')"<


function launchWFClient(value){


I am getting the value displayed as <%=passedValue %<

Is there way to pass the value that is defined in the scriptlet to the javascript, that is , is there a way to display "Test Value"
or am i getting the basics wrong?

And how do I get awa with < symbol I was not able to post with that in my content
thanks for the help in advance.

1) yes you are getting the basics wrong.

Have a look at this thread

2) whenever posting some code snippets, use UBB code.
