I just figured that out and when I came here to post it that is exactly what you had just said. I had started coding my servlet from an example I had found somewhere online, and they had overridden the init(). I didn't have anything to override so I just left it sitting there blank like you would expect of a greenhorn.
I got it to forward on, but when I do the "<p>$(modelBean.Po)</p>" in my jsp it actually prints out "$(modelBean.Po)". Now I assumed that this was some sort of value reference. How exactly do I access my bean data? Or should I, instead of writing a bean, just set a session attribute. I found that doing a session.setAttribute from within my FormManager controller doesn't work. The Simple MVC example uses a bean to control data, so that is what I did to get it working.
My results.jsp page looks like this...
Am I missing something? I just want to see the values and prove that things are working before I go ahead and start to implement more of my logic.
