Bear, thanks for the reply. I am using the NTLM servlet to pull the authenticated username from the browser. So for instance if I access the Servlet it prints out mydomain/gforte. I was trying to "include" the Servlet in my jsp and "grab" that string(mydomain/gforte).
I could easily do this by accessing the Servlet first and then redirect to my jsp and pass this as a POST parameter OR set a session in the servlet and then redirect, but I was trying to keep it modular so that other apps could use it.
How else could I access a Variable called authenticatedUser (that resides in the Servlet) from my jsp without a redirect from the servlet?
Thanks for any tips! [ March 14, 2007: Message edited by: g forte ]
