Session Issue

I had declared scope="session" in my struts_Config.xml file. But when I come to my JSP page unless I specify scope="session" in bean:write I am not getting the data.

<forward name="success" path="/jsp/request/jsp/Request.jsp" />

JSP page

<bean:write name="RequestForm" property="requestOriginator" scope="session"/>

If I explicitly use session.setAttribte("RequestForm") in my EditRequestAction then it is working perfectly without specify scope="session" in struts_Config

Please let me know how to do it with scope="session" struts_Config and without explicitly setting the session attribute in action class and using scope="session" in jsp page.

It's important to realize that session is the default scope for a Struts action, so whether you specify scope="session" or simply omit the scope attribute, the result will be the same.

As to why your bean:write doesn't show anything unless you specify scope="session", I have no idea. A bean write tag will search all scopes for the name you give, and will display it if it's found.
