Hi all,
I have set a session, application var. in a JSP as follows:
<%
..
session.setAttribute("debugmode",String.valueOf(debugmode));
getServletContext().setAttribute("log",log);
..
%>
then this JSP will call a Servlet and from that Servlet I am try to use those session, application var. as follows:

HttpSession session = request.getSession(false);
Boolean tmpb = new Boolean((String)session.getAttribute("debugmode"));
BufferedWriter log = (BufferedWriter)getServletContext().getAttribute("log")

Which is nothing complicated but both values are null when I try to retriev them from the Servlet.
Can someone shed some light on this?
Thanks
