Subject Re: global parameters
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2000 16:11:41 GMT
Ok, I posted a question earlier about init parameters for JSPs but
haven't seen any replys but this thread is close enough that maybe I can
learn of a solution.

I followed a MVC design pattern and have a Main.jsp which creates a
Controller object which creates beans. How can I use <context-param> for
Main.jsp in web.xml? I mean, it's a JSP not a servlet so I don't
normally put servlet info in the web.xml about Main.jsp...

Thanks for any clarity.

The easiest way to do this is to use context initialization parameters,
rather than servlet initialization parameters.  I don't have the Servlet
2.2 spec in front of me, but it's probably <context-param> or something
like that.

In the servlet, you retrieve such a parameter like this:

    String paramValue =
