Hi Folks,

Can anyone tell me how do we call a java script method in a JSP file.Can we use it directly call it? Can we retrieve a session variable in javascript? if yes, then please specify how? and if no then do tell me the reason.

Thanks in advance.

regards,
Dipti

Javascript is interpreted in the browser (client side) whereas JSP is interpreted on the server.

The easiest way to understand the implications of this is to think:
"The JSP writes the HTML and Javascript which the browser will interpret."
and to use your browser's "View -> Source" option to look at the actual HTML/Javascript code which was the output from your JSPs execution.
