Difficulty using session object in JSP

Clive_Stewart

I am trying to pass a value from one jsp page to another.

For simplicity in my example the pages are pg1.jsp and pg2.jsp

In pg1.jsp I do as follows.

HttpSessionContext sc=request.getSession().getSessionContext();

request.setAttribute("name", "clive");

String pg2 ="pg2.jsp";

RequestDispatcher pg2Dispatcher = request.getRequestDispatcher(pg2);

            try {
                pg2Dispatcher .include(request, response);
            } catch (Exception exception) {
                out.println("Error: " + exception);

            }

 

on pg2.jsp 

<%      
   String country = request.getParameter("country"); 
%>
<b> <%=country%>
<%  

This displays "null" on the generated html

 

 

If I try to use session instead.

 

On pg1.jsp 

 

       try {
                session.include(request, response);
            } catch (Exception exception) {
                out.println("Error: " + exception);
       }

 

An error occurred at line: 26 in the jsp file:pg2.jsp
session cannot be resolved
23: 
24: if (desktopDispatcher != null){ */
25:        try {
26:                 session.include(request, response);
27:             } catch (Exception exception) {
28:                 out.println("Error: " + exception);
29:        }

 

I thought that session was automatically available in jsp.

My question is, how can I use Session session, or HTTPSession sesssion inside CQ to pass a variable from one jsp to another?

Hi Clive Stewart,


1)    Dont use session in aem.
2)    Use getattribute instead of getparameter based on your code.
3)    For session make sure global or cq:DefineObjects is imported.

Sham provided an answer to this thread. I will get him to provide the answer again. Looks like in the recent fix- that reply was dropped.
