i'm invoking a jsp inside of this i'm including another jsp at runtime using jsp:include.
Can someone tell how to access a java variable from the enclosing jsp inside this included jsp.
thanks in advance

By placing the variable in the request object via
and then retreiving it with request.getAttibute() in the other JSP.
This is for dynamic includes, BTW, not for static ones.
