What's the context? If this is defined within a servlet declaration, then the servlet is probably written to do something with this. Without seeing the servlet code, impossible to say.

That doesn't narrow it down any.

What Bear is suggesting is that you take a look at the servlet code. It's probably reading this value and comparing it to some value and then taking some action. However, without seeing the servlet code, it's not possible to say. Also, the servlet may not even read this value at all.

The knowledgable folks here are always willing to answer questions provided enough information is provided. And, you have NOT done that.

I have answered the question as much as it can be answered with the information you have given. If you are unwilling to respond with additional information as it is requested in order to answer the question, then there's not much more that can be done.
