If you didn't define it, and it's not a JSP implicit variable, then it does not exist.

What is "<%= name %>" here ? If you say its form input element "name" , i m afraid you can use like that.
How do you retrieve form element in Servlet ? using request object ? the same applies to JSP also . But JSP has 2 way to go

Use EL , the most simple way to get it. ${param.name}

Other bad way is to use scriplets like request.getParameter("name");

No. In a modern JSP, you'd do that with the EL param built-in map; or better yet, you'd submit to a controller rather than a JSP.

But since you are still using old-fashioned scriptlets, you'd use the API on the request as Balu pointed out.

You really either need to read the JSP Specification, or find a good JSP tutorial. The questions you are asking show that you do not have a basic understand of what JSP is and how it operates. You can start with this article that describes JSP concepts and basic operation.
