Hi All
I am developing an office management/intranet based upon JSP/Servlets. I need urgent help!!
Heres the project
*-- the users are categorized in 3 cats
*-- when they log on thru web browser (intranet) they are directed to different JSP pages specific to their job designation.
*-- then there is series of JSP pages which are accessed by the users.
now I have created a Servlet(controller servlet) which first takes the login/pw from the http request, connects to the DB , verifies the login/pw then loads different JSP pages by checking the employee cat.
now first of all how do I maintain the session??
& second how do I send information regarding the employee from lets say
1.jsp to 2.jsp??
I would really appreciate the help
& should I use EJBs or would regular beans be ok

You should actually use setAttribute() and getAttribute() since putValue() and getValue() are deprecated.
The javascript was just to get me out of frames.
Hope that helps

Thanks a lot Randall
now another question....
*-- would this session object (created in the servlet) be accessible to all the jsp pages.
*-- & how can I forward the request recieved by the controlling servlet to the following jsp pages??
simply by passing them into the session object??
thanks alot

Farooq,
1. Yes, objects put in session are available to all jsp pages in the same web application
( provided your jsp pages participate in session. Any way , the default is all jsp pages participate in session unless you
purposly make in <@page session=false... %> in your jsp page! )
2.
Use either .forward or .include of RequestDispatcher. A sample code is

We can forward to .html/.jsp/anyServlet resource.
But the /Login/login.jsp is the virtual path of browser URL.
