passing variables from Servlet to JSP

Can someone show me a sample for passing variables from servlets to JSPs? This is what I have in my servlet:

And this is my JSP:

Hopefully someone will point out the goof up!
Thanks much.

I hope this isn't a really dumb answer, but it looks to me as if you have a typo--
<% = Attr1 %>
There shouldn't be a space between the % and the =.
<%= Attr1 %>
Though for all I know, it works just fine with the space there; I've never tried it that way. Somebody just shoot me if this is a clueless answer.

I believe the problem is that you are getting the RequestDispather from the ServletContext interface. Which implies that the path must begin with a "/", which is interpreted relative to the current context root.
rd = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/newJSP.jsp");
This becomes a URL relative to the root of the webapp.

WOW,
Moose's eye...
both the "/" and the space were the problems.
Thank you.
