Servlet / JSP Scoped Objects

The following are ways to obtain Application scope attributes, Session scope attributes, Request scope attributes, Request parameters and framework Context scope parameters:-

Application Scope Attribute

Assuming there's an attribute with name 'myApplicationAttribute' in the Application scope.

Session Scope Attribute

Assuming there's an attribute with name 'mySessionAttribute' in the Session scope.

Request Scope Attribute

Assuming there's an attribute with name 'myRequestAttribute' in the Request scope.

Request Parameter

Assuming there's a request parameter myParameter (e.g. http://host/myApp/myAction.action?myParameter=one).

Context Scope Parameter

Assuming there's a parameter with the name myContextParam in our context.

Tag Support

See the JSP Tags documentation for information on how to use the generic Struts Tags provided by the framework.

There are a couple of ways to obtain access to ValueStack from JSPs.
