I'm creating a database connection in a servlet. In the same servlet I'm retrieving the data from the data base into a ResultSet object say 'rs'. Now, when I try to put this object in he Request object [request.setAttribute("result",rs)] an exception is thrown that is "Attribute has no value". I've successfully used this technique for forwarding the Exception object to the error page in the catch block of the same servlet. I don't why it's giving the error. When I try to display the values of the ResultSet object "rs" it displays all the values, which indicates that the resultset is not empty. pls ans asap. Thanks.
