What do you mean by "send it to the browser"? Session attributes exist (and are used) on the server.

Nothing much. Once you say, setAttribute, it sets the attribute in the particular session on the Server.

In any other servlet or jsp, you can get access to the session first and then from the session, you can get the attribute by making use of "getAttribute()".


Everything has got its own deadline including one's EGO!
