Hi there...
Can anybody in the saloon put light on ...
If we extend a class in jsp with the page directive attribute "extends"...then how can we handle the request and response as by default a jsp extends httpServlet after translation.

Hoping to hear soon

Dont worry about the request and response as the class your jsp extends
ought to subclass from HttpServletRequest at some point in its hirearchy. It would throw an error otherwise and hence should be the least of your concerns. Read the quote below to learn what you should be worried about.

From the jsp 2.0 spec

This attribute should not be used without careful
consideration as it restricts the ability of the JSP container to
provide specialized superclasses that may improve on the
quality of rendered service.


cheers,

From my previous post...

That should be HttpServlet.
