Hai All!
What i am trying is very simple and i am not getting it.

here is my problem:
I have to servlets A & B and i am doing following things.
1) dispatching request from A to B using include method
2) Storing some dummy attribute in a session Object (Using setAttribute) in Servlet B
3) When i tried to retrieve that attribute from A using getAttribute method (After dispatching request) i am getting a null val
Also i donn have any clue whether B is getting invoked or not as
print statements (in B )are also not reflecting.

Any help in this regard is apreciable.
TIA

I don't think servlet A can retrieve the attributes set in servlet B.u said the servlet B is included in servlet A ,then the control will go to servlet B,then how can retrieve the attributes set in B.No wonder, u r getting null values.
