i am very new to JSF. My question
say a form has the following JSF component
<h:inputHidden id= "emp_id_val" value="AX"/>

How can I access the hidden field value using request scope?.

As we know, if the component is as below instead of the above.
<input type="hidden" name="emp_id_val" value="AX"/>
we can use <%=request.getParameter("emp_id_val")%>

I am looking for the similar kind of thing for JSF component.

you can use value=#{requestScope['managed bean in requestscope'].attribute}

You could even bind the hidden field to an instance of a JSF HtmlInputHidden and extract it that way, although I prefer the previous posters approach:
