HI

In web.xml i have written ,

<servlet>
<servlet-name>servlettest</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>ServletTest</servlet-class>

<init-param>
<param-name>ram</param-name>
<param-value>JAI SHRI RAM</param-value>
</init-param>
</servlet>

and when in my JSP i am writting ,

String value1 = getServletConfig().getInitParameter("ram");

then it showing the value of "value1" as null.

Please tell me that how to deal read value from there in <init-param>

Thanks
Regards
Gaurav

Init parameters that you have given inside the <servlet> entry of servletTest will be available only for that servlet. You cannot get it from other servlets or JSPs.

I have examples of both servlet config init params and Context Init Params.

If you want the parameter to be available to all servlets and JSPs, then you would want to use the latter.
