Hi, I'm trying to code a JSF portlet on WebSphere Portal 6. I have put values into the portlet session, however I cannot pull them out of the portlet session using jstl. Your typical

doesn't work because the jstl is looking in the HttpSession, not in the PortletSession.

Anyone know how to use jstl to access a variable in the portlet session?

Hi,
I'm having the same problem I can't access portlet session using JSTL in the Portal (Websphere Portal 6.0).

I have to use <%=renderRequest.getPortletSession().getAttribute("comment")%>

I saw that something here that might help:

Can you cast it to a PortletSession?

I see the other posts date from mid-2008, but anyway: This is probably a bug in the IBM Struts Portlet Framework. PK92740 did the trick for me...

Hope it helps!
