Can we assign a session variable to a form property

Suppose I have a session variable named "username"........I do the following:

String user=(String) session.getAttribute("username");
if(user==null) user="";

Now can I write:

<jsp:setProperty name="details" property= "*" />

<jsp:setProperty name="details" property="id" value="user" />

If no, then how can I use the session parameter as a form parameter?

You can use expression in the value attribute of set property, it's allowed

thanks.........I don't know whether it worked or not because when I am sending the value to the java file I still get the same result as follows:
false ACCOUNT NUMBER: 5456

here are the codes:



I would be grateful if someone could point out my mistake

Please tell me whether the JSP programs are right and whether the values enter the java file because I have separately run the java file in IDE using specific values and it worked just fine

I am now sure that the value is not entering the java program because I am getting Resultset exhausted

What does a result set have to do with your session?

I have done it.......thanks to everyone who helped!!! Actually the problem was that the session parameter was not being recognized by the bean I tried the other way round.............I did not use:

What I did was that pass the session parameter as an argument to the Java file and got the result

The problem why I got the resultSet exhausted was that the Java program was not able to recognize one of the parameters and taking it as null for which I was basically getting:
