Subject Servlet Breaks HttpSession among JSP pages?
Date Mon, 03 Jul 2000 18:36:34 GMT
Dear Gurus,

Please save me, otherwise I will be fired.

Let me state my problem using the following model.

I have two JSP pages: page_1.jps and page2.jsp.
In the first page, I  brought in a JavaBean
of type Person.  Person have only one property
called "name". I set property "name" in the
first page---page1.jsp. I set the scope of the Bean
as "session".

Now I hit my second JSP page--- page2.jsp. In this
page, I simply use the same bean but get property
"name" and display it.  I DID see the name in the browser.

So far, so good.

Now I add a HTML form in the first page with
its "action" pointing to /servlet/MyServlet".

<form method=get name="user"
      action="/servlet/MyServlet" >
<input type="submit" value="Go">

The doGet() method is implemented as follows:

RequestDispatcher rd = getServletContext().

In another word,  MyServlet just  does a "forward".

At this stage, I lost luck. In the browser, I did not
see the person's name.

It seems to me that Servlet broke the HttpSession.
Could anybody please tell me why and how to cure?

Thank you in avance.
