Since you say "form", I assume you're trying to do this from a browser with an HTML form?

ArrayList is a Java class, so it can't be used by HTML. Can you tell us in more detail what you're trying to do?

Within the jsp file i have a arraylist.

<FORM method="post" action="servlet/Servlets.loginservlet">

Actually, I'm more confused now. A JSP doesn't post to a servlet - it generates text to be sent to the browser. The browser -where there's no Java involved- then posts something to a server if the user submits a form.

Are you trying to make the elements of the ArrayList part of the HTML form? If so, how about making them hidden fields of the form?

i believe you need to carry data from servlet to jsp. you need scope to carry it.. you can use request or session scope(accor to requirment) to store array list object in servlet and then retrieve it in jsp
I agree. Here's the link:
