Herez my understanding about two methods to access request parameters.
apart from .getAttribute() gives us an OBJ & .getParameter() gives a String.
This is the main difference between both methods. setAttribute and getAttribute is provided to pass and retrive an java Object between servlets and jsps. where as getParameter is usee to fetch the parameters submited by user either by submiting form or by query string.
Now coming to your problem as you have set parameter using setAttribute you MUST fetch it using getAttribute.
Hope this helps Cheers Praful [ October 15, 2004: Message edited by: Praful Thakare ]
