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?
