Subject Re: request parameter question ...
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2003 09:02:28 GMT
I guess if i use setAttribute ... i have to use getAttribute ... thats 
the reason i get the blank string .. coz i was using getParameter

my problem is that the jsp uses getParameter ... it would have been 
good if i could have used the same method regardless as how the 
parameter was set.
