Hi Friends.
What is the Difference between HttpSession.getAttribute() and HttpSession.getValue()
I know that method getValue() is deprecated. I just want to know that is there any added advantage of getAttribute() over getValue() ?

I am not sure whether my answer is correct. I think the latest J2EE specs try to set naming conventition of dynamic objects as 'attributes'. 'value' is more likely for static objects.

getValue() is a deprecated version of getAttribute(). That means you don't use it in new code. The advantage of using non-deprecated methods is that your code will stay current, at least until the newer method is deprecated, if ever.
