Hello.

I am starting with tags, and I have the following doubt.

I have an strut action where I send this request attribute



Now, I would like to know how can I use this attribute from jsp or from a tag handler class

I tried pageContext.getAttribute("object") but I think it returns null.

Thank you

Within a JSP page, you'd use the following EL expression: ${object}

matias casal wrote:... from a tag handler class ... I tried pageContext.getAttribute("object") but I think it returns null.



Why would you look in page scope for a scoped variable that you placed in request scope?

You already know about getAttribute(), so what's the problem? Just be sure to use it on the correct scope.

Looking for a scoped variable that you placed in request scope within page scope is like putting your jacket in the hall closet and then wondering why you can't find it in the pantry.

My problem is that, i send the attribute from an strut action


Then the strut actions goes to queyr.jsp

From query.jsp if i do something like this with scriptless

works perfectly

But now, I trying to use jsp tags.
In my tag handler i have the following code

or this


But when I use those in the tag handler the jsp is not load beause of
HTTP 500

I will repeat for the 3rd time: if you put a scoped variable in request context you must get it from request context.

I understood what you say.
But I have NO IDEA of how to do it in the tag handler.
Sorry for being reiterative

Get the request from the page context, find the scoped variable within it.

You can use findAttribute method in PageContext if you are not sure of the scope of the variable:

So what have you done to find out what's null? Have you verified that pageContext is not null? ShowSomeEffort!
