function check_session() {

<% if (session.isNew()) { ..
); else {
{ ...
%>


}

I want to embed above code in Javascript. should return true if it is a new session or false. This function will be called on onload of body of HTML. How will I do this? If it was a pure javascript that was not a problem but I can not check session state in javascript, so I need to embed this JSP code in Javascript.

you could say
<script language="javascript">
function check_session(){
<% if (session.isNew()) { %>
return true;
<% }else { %>
return false;
<% } %>
}
</script>

Hope this helps

Hello,

Does it works? Server side method calls in javascript.

Thankx

Yes sometime works, depends on the scenerio/implementation. But should not do that. It would lead you to a misconception though.

If you view the source on the client-side you would probably have it like,

<script language="javascript">
function check_session(){
return true;
}
</script>

or

<script language="javascript">
function check_session(){
return false;
}
</script>

you will in JSP always have a session.
JSPs implicitly create a session if none is available...
