Passing a String from jsp to servlet

I have a jsp page, where I am setting a
 as a request attribute.
In the corresponding
, I say request.getAttribute("key") -> I get Null Pointer Exception.
I tried using
rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("relative path"); -- line 1
After putting the above two lines, the jsp page isnt rendered properly and gives a Translation error.
My servlet is in a package a.b.c.Servlet.java. How do I give this path in line 1.
SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4<br /> <br />Thanks in advance!<br />Jayashree.

Are you trying to pass the value from the webpage back to the server this way?
How are you getting from your
to the servlet?
