Hallo Everyone,
I am trying to learn jsp.
why does not this scriptlet in my form.jsp work?
<%= config.getInitParameter("email") %>
My web.xml has the following

<servlet>
<servlet-name>MyJSPServlet</servlet-name>
<jsp-file>/form.jsp</jsp-file>
<init-param>
<param-name>email</param-name>
<param-value>subansuba@yahoo.co.in</param-value>
</init-param>
</servlet>

I simply get
My Contact: null
when i get to this page

Thanks and regards

Are you hitting the JSP directly?
If so, init params won't show up.
You'll need to create a servlet mapping and point your browser to the url-pattern from your mapping.

It wasn't a silly question.
There is no need to close the thread.
It will sink into the abyss as newer ones show up and push it down.
Glad it's working and Welcome to Javaranch.
