Hi all,

I am trying to pass a paramter form a jsp file to an action.
In the jsp I specify the parameter as following.

<html:link action="/viewPerson" paramId="pId" paramName="person" paramProperty="id">Link Text</html:link>

The action is specified in the struts-config file as follows.
<action path="/viewPerson" type="a.b.c.PersonAction"
scope="request" input="">
<forward name="success" path="/"/>

In the execute method of the actions a.b.c.PersonAction action class is the following.

String personId = (String)request.getAttribute("pId");

The problem is that the jobId here is null.
Also when i hover over the link text i can see that the paramter is set in explorer i.e. http://localhost:8080/

Does anyone know what i am doing wrong?

Thanks a lot for the help in advance.

I think you're confusing HttpServletRequest "attributes" with HttpServletRequest "parameters". I think you want
. Hope this helps.
