Subject Re: Retrieving Objects from the Session Results in a Null Pointer
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2000 16:55:52 GMT
Two suggestions:

1. You do have- <%@ page session="true" %> in your JSPs, yes? If not you
won't be able to maintain session information from one page to another.
2. Use session.getAttribute() instead of session.getValue(), which is
deprecated.
