How do I pass a variable from one jsp to another?

For example: Say I've set the ID of btnDelete equal to the variable custID. When I click btnDelete I'd like to push that variable to the next page.



To shed some light on why I'm not simply using request.getParameter: I'm filling a table with data from a database (Something similar to a data grid in ASP.NET) One of my columns has a 'Delete' button; when I select any given delete button I want to delete that row of data. This is how I've built my table:

So while I build my table I can set the custID variable to something like the id of the 'Delete' button or in a hidden text box.

I don't know, maybe this is all real "Hokey" but it's the best that I can come up with....

Put a hidden input with the value in the form.

Two other things:
  • Putting a button inside a label is really weird.
  • Java in a JSP is a very very poor practice that's been discredited for almost 10 years now. Time to get down with modern techniques...

  • Scarry since that is how my instructor is teaching it....

    Anyway, I've been working on this to the point where I can't think straight. From what I've read; it seems like I should be doing this through a function but I haven't been able to put that together.

    oi!

    Oh well, when you're out on your own, know that things have moved on quite a bit...

    Can't think of any reason that you need anything but a hidden input.

    I don't know why I was fighting the hidden field route. After some sleep I tried that again with success.

    Thanks Bear!
