This code is working ok. But when I replace int with String throws error.

<%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>JSP Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<%

int i=0;
String str=null;
while(i<10)
{i++;
str="abc"+i;
%>

<input type="text" id="aa" onclick="alert(<%=i%>);" />
// <input type="text" id="aa" onclick="alert(<%=str%>);" /> this is not working


<%
}
%>
<script type="text/javascript">

function total(str)
{

alert(str);

}

</script>
</body>
</html>
This code is working ok . But when I replace i with str [for eg alert(<%=str%>)] this shows str is not defined. But this code is working ok with i [integer value]

In the case of Integer, you are passing the int value which is a number.
In the case of String, you are passing the runtime value which is some text representation.

The alert() function doesn't know how to interpret the text value unless its a String,
it assumes you are trying to print a JavaScript variable which in your case doesn't exist.

However to get it to work you will have to enclose the value in single quotes.


You can investigate this further by viewing the source of the JSP file from within the browser.
