This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm confused about something..
I have 2 pages..a home page and a search page.
In the home page, I included the search page
the homepage has the address
I want the search page to be able to read get variables from the address bar..that was why i include a <jsp:param>
so that in the search page i can just go
But instead of typing
in the search.jsp page..I accidentally typed the actual variable in the get
And it worked, it was only after I realized the slip! :S..
I thought when you send a form to a certain page..only that certain page should be able to read param values..hence home.jsp should only be able to read the get variables...That was i added the jsp:param
But if search page could read it..without sending a direct post or get request to it..does that mean the variables in the param are global?
Or is it because I included the search in the homepage so it was able to read directly the variables? I am going more for params variables are global..
Would be grateful if someone can clear this fog up.
