Hi All,

I am trying to fetch the configuration parameter from withing jspInit() method which i have overridden in my jsp code, although i am able to retrieve the context parameter.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd">


JSP code
<%! public void jspInit()
ServletConfig cfg = getServletConfig();

String id = cfg.getInitParameter("email");

ServletContext ctx = getServletContext();

String name = ctx.getInitParameter("name");

System.out.print(id +" "+name);
<%! int counter = 0; %>
<%! int countermethod()
counter += counter + 2;

return counter;

<%= countermethod() %>

I think there is some servlet naming problem , but I am not able to pin point the problem. Is it not possible to get it or this is not the correct way of fetching cofig parameters.

you just need to write a <servlet-mapping>. without <servlet-mapping> you are accessing your jsp as jsp, not as servlet. just add this to your web.xml and you are all good.
