Object to String array

I'm not sure if this should be in this forum or the JSP or Servlet forum...but here goes.

I want to convert a type object to a String array.
We're adding a String array to the request object in the servlet code, but in the JSP code when I get the attribute (which is working), it comes back as a type Object. But where do I go from there?

Did you try casting it to String[]?

I guess you're using the getAttribute() method from the request object. This method returns an object. As Darin suggested, cast it to the String[].

I agree. Here's the link:
