Fetching values from request attributes


Level 5


I am trying to set some value in request scope and fetch the same in HTL, it is not working, Not sure if this is doable in HTL without using Use API or backend changes.


<%@include file="/libs/foundation/global.jsp" %>
boolean isActive = false;
<c:set var="productStatus" value="<%=isActive%>" scope="request" />

<div data-sly-include="/apps/wknd/components/page/common/product.jsp" data-sly-unwrap></div>

<div>productStatus Flag - ${request.getAttribute("productStatus").toString}</div>

Yes you will have to write some backend code for getting request attributes. I would recommend that you write a generic backend class which can be used for fetching any request attribute. You can refer to following example - http://www.6dglobal.com/blog/accessing-request-variables-sightly-2015-01-23
