I originally posted this as a beginner Java question, but I guess it's really JSP specific. Nobody responded, so I thought maybe my information was incomplete. I've made it more informative.
Anyway, when I test my application locally, I can pull variables I've set in my web.xml file under the <context-param> sections and put them into my JSPs, e.g.
However, when I FTP my WAR file onto my hosted site, the same getInitParameter() method call returns null. What am I doing wrong? It is the cheapest Java hosting I could find, so it's a shared JVM and IP, etc. Is this having an effect on the application object? I'd really appreciate a response and please pardon the re-post.
Your post has already been moved to this forum. Please do not post the same question more than once. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. [ May 30, 2006: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
