I have a login page with username and password .After entering the credentials , a click on login button in this page would take me to a jsp which has CreateProject button.

A click on this button would take me to another jsp which consists of a form. This form has a textField called projectCreator which should be set with the username of the user.

How can I set the user name in that textfield? what tag should i use, as scriplet in not the right way?

There are many ways of doing this. Let's say that a session scoped attribute named "username" stores the username. Then to put that as a value in a textfield, you've gotta do just this

This will set the value of the username session attribute as the value of the textfield...

you only have to follow struts way of doing it you have call the setter method of the textfield
for example
my field name:
private String txtDescription;

getter and setters
public String getTxtDescription() {
return txtDescription;
public void setTxtDescription(String txtDescription) {
this.txtDescription = txtDescription;

In targeted method

place one line


reply if you want more detail.

A delayed reply but yes I did that...

This is what I have,

My JSP...

Nothing is getting printed in the UI..

The output :-->


If I remove theme="none" then,

In UI:

projectCreator //line1
(textfield) //line2

what should be the changes??
