Hi all,
relatively new to jsp and servlets so bear with me please...
I am trying to create a jsp page with a simple form, this form then calls a servlet to validate the fields and if they have not been filled in correctly then it forwards back to the form page.
I am having trouble though detecting on the jsp page as to whether the form has been checked already. I have tried setAttribute for the session but this is causing nullPointer problems when I first access the form as I think it is trying to access attributes from the session that don't currently exist ?
If anyone has a simple solution to this problem then I'd be grateful for some help, apologies for the lack of code but I think it best if maybe someone just hints out the proper way of doing it and I'll try that before posting anything.
Thanks in advance
Jon
