Is there anyway to pass a return statement back to a jsp?
(Reason why I ask is because sometimes my calling jsp will call a bean or servlet that will need to do response.sendRedirect() and do not want the calling jsp to continue processing...instead I want the calling jsp to just immediately redirect to avoid response already committed exceptions)
To get the same effect as this at runtime:
Edit: Just to clarify a little bit. The reason why I do not want to handle the if/then return statement in the calling jsp is because I do not want others to have to write the if/then return logic into their calling jsps should they want to implement my bean/servlet.

>Is there anyway to pass a return statement back to a jsp? No. You can only "return" down one level in the call stack. I suppose you could throw an exception to have it drop down multiple levels, but using exceptions to control program flow is bad karma.
You could possibly pass the data via a request attribute. ie
