This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The one I posted was my last attempt (using parameter instead which is the equivalent of request.getParameter).
Anyway if I set the variable "name" inside pageContext it DOES works. Yet it's a bit annoying because I have to replace all variable assignment with pageContex.setAttribute......maybe I'll find an easier way to do it. Thanks a lot anywat
