Accessing HTML values in JSP without submitting
I'm trying to access a value in a textbox through JSP without submitting the page. Any suggestions? There doesn't seem to be a mechanism for it, as request.getParameter() only gets values from the requesting page. Also, in a scriptlet, all statements must be complete, so can't do something like this:
String s = new String("
<script type="text/javascript" defer="defer">
//do something with String s
Any suggestions? Thanks.
I think you should start with a plain HTML file containing the Javascript that works the way you want, then turn that into a JSP page.
I think you are confusing the roles of Javascript on the client and server-side programming. JSP can only work with a browser request.
