I have a very simple jsp page first.jsp that gives reference to so many other jsp pages through hyperlink. i am trying to pass a value through the hyperlink in first.jsp and retrieve it in second.jsp using request.getparameter(). i used:

and in the second.jsp page i used

alert( "value = " + <%= request.getParameter("value") %>);

but when i try to run the code and click on Second JSP i get a 404 page not found error for :second.jsp?value=1 Please help

P.S i know scriplets are not the correct way of doing but this is just a simple one and since i am new to coding i would like to try this first

A 404 has nothing to do with the parameter. The base URL is somehow wrong.

Yes. The URL is wrong. The resource which you are requesting for is not present in your project.

The wrong URL maybe due to reasons like spelling mistake and wrong physical location (different directory, wrong directory,etc).

Hope this helps :)
