Hi all! I'm using jsp,servlets,tomcat 4 to develop a webapplication. The application can be accessed in many languages. I used to develop my applications in asp , com before and there I could make an application object i global.asa load text from the database into the object and use it to gain text from the object. If let's say the user clicked the US flag then english text could be retrieved from the object. I used this so that I wouldn't have to access the database for every word printed on the page. My question is. How do I do this in java.
I'm now using classes from Collection package and populates the collection from the database. Now how can I store the my class in memory so that I can get data from my class not using new. i don't want to get the data from the database, just from the object! // Mathias
You can use the ServleteContext. In your servlet do ServletConext sc = getServletContext(); then you cam store object references in the ServletContext like this MyDataObject mdo = new MyDataObject(); sc.setAttribute("foo", mdo); then to retrieve the data MyDataObject mdo2 = (MyDataObject)sc.getAttribute("foo");
