Hello Ranchers,
In my Action class i have a string variable - myName. I have put this in session i.e. request.getSession(true).setAttribute("Name", myName);

Now i am Forwarded to "xyz.JSP". I want the variable in the previous Action class to be displayed in the JSP.

It can be done through "request.getParameter()". But on submission of xyz.jsp (i am using Validation.xml for validations) if the validation fails - "request.getParameter()" will return null when "xyz.jsp" is redisplayed.

So can someone suggest me, how to display the value in the jsp such that even if validation fails - when the jsp is redisplayed i can have that value.

Pls help....

It can be done through "request.getParameter()".

Actually, no, it can't. Something passed as a parameter to the request is quite different than something set as an attribute to the HttpSession object. In java, you would retrieve this value with:

String name = (String)request.getSession().getAttribute("Name");

In a JSP, you can either use JSTL:

<cut value="${Name}" />

or a Struts tag

<bean:write name="Name" />

Thanks Merill,
But i mentioned, request.getParameter() as a Second Alternative. Of Course, we cant retrieve any value set in session as request parameters.

But anyway got my answer i.e. through <bean:write .....>
