Hi All,

I am trying to fetch the configuration parameter from withing jspInit() method which i have overridden in my jsp code, although i am able to retrieve the context parameter.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4" xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">


JSP code
<%! public void jspInit()
ServletConfig cfg = getServletConfig();

String id = cfg.getInitParameter("email");

ServletContext ctx = getServletContext();

String name = ctx.getInitParameter("name");

System.out.print(id +" "+name);
<%! int counter = 0; %>
<%! int countermethod()
counter += counter + 2;

return counter;

<%= countermethod() %>

I think there is some servlet naming problem , but I am not able to pin point the problem. Is it not possible to get it or this is not the correct way of fetching cofig parameters.

With Regads

you just need to write a <servlet-mapping>. without <servlet-mapping> you are accessing your jsp as jsp, not as servlet. just add this to your web.xml and you are all good.
