Hi, How does one retrieve context parameters from web.xml via jsp pages. There are many examples of retrieving init-parameters (i.e. via ServerConfig object) but none for context-parameters (i.e. via ServerContext object). I've tried parameter = getSerlvetContext.getInitParamters("whatever"); The init method of a jsp servlet is not allowed to be overridden so you can't recreate a servlet approach to the problem. The JSP specs. mention an implicit object called "application" which is supposedly the ServletContext of a JSP page but when I try String parameter = application.getInitParameter("whatever"); I get "Undefined variable or class name: application" perhaps I'm doing this wrong. Does any one have any idea? Thanks for any help

BTW, I've also tried: ServletContext context = config.getServletContext(); String value = (String)context.getInitParameter("whatever"); I get "Undefined variable or class name: config" According to the documentation these objects are supposed to exist already like "out" and "request" hence the name "implicit"? Can anyone throw any light on what I'm missing here?
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
