In a jsp If I have a submit button that takes me to another page,will the request object still be available in that next page. Iam facing the following issue .

<form method=post action="Second.jsp" >
<% String st="abc";
request.setAttribute("abc",st) ;
<input type=submit name="GO" value="GO"/>

The value is : ${abc}

The value is : (nothing is being printed)

Note: Iam Using Tomcat 5.5 and El is enabled and is working fine.

My Doubt: Is Clicking the button Go is Making me to go to Client and request is being lost?

Please provide solution for this.Thanks.

When the button is clicked the client is making a new request, so yes, the original request is lost. What you are trying to do needs parameters (you cannot set request parameters programatically);
