Session Attribute value Ertatic

I have a JSP that acts as a logon page. It requests a servlet(jQuery). That servlet calls a class that returns a user default value. Then the value is set to a session attribute. Now, I click a link on the same JSP to request another servlet(jQuery) using the attribute value as "${myAttribute}".

Sometimes all is well but then at times my request fails because the attribute value is blank.

The only way I can get it to consistantly work is to bring the default value back as a parameter in my jQuery call.

"blank" or null?

That servlet calls a class that returns a user default value.


Suspicion immediatly falls on this "class" - is that really a static method or is there a class instance?

IF - attributes occasionally show up blank - ie empty string
THEN - there must be a path through your code that fails before the initialized value of "" gets set to another value

I would look for Exceptions that are not correctly reported.
