Some help with a sample SCWCD question based on Listeners.

Hi All,

I'm very much confused by the following question and it's answer. It's a program actually.

Assume the below to be a valid HTTP Servlet that has been registered with a HTTPServletRequestAttribute Listener class.



And the output is this..

=======================
A:a->b P:a->b M:a->c
=====================

Now how is it that we get the old value of the attribute "a" even if we replace the value of the attribute a?
Is there a way, I could get the new, latest value of "a" the moment it is replaced? This could lead to a potential bug in a production code, not sure why it has to work like this.

Any thoughts?

Regds,
Abhijit.

HI

You can use ev.getServletRequest().getAttribute("a") to get the new value thus the getValue() method has been coded to return the old value.
