Hi all,
I would like to know, what are the prerequisites to pass a java variable to a tag as a variable.
The tag is not accepting the java variable in <%= %> tags.
The tag variable accepts the hardcoded value in ""
String strUserid="lakshmi";
eg userid="lakshmi" but not as userid="<%=strUserid%>"
java variable.

Hi Anasapurapu,
Are you trying to pass a variable value to another application? Not sure why you are trying to use a 'tag' otherwise
I'm going to move this over to Java in General - Beginning as it's not directly related to SCJP Study.

Nice try Jane, but I believe that this is a JavaServerPage question.
Sorry about the musical chairs but I think that you will get a better response in Serlets and JSPS.
