I need to be able to access (and ultimately replace) a servlet context attribute from within an action servlet that extends the MappingDispatchAction class. I cannot seem to get the right syntax to access the attribute so I can test if I need to update/replace it. I can provide code samples if needed, but was hoping this would be an easy issue to resolve.


Thanks in advance,
Scott

It's pretty easy. Inside any method in your Action class, just code:

ServletContext servletContext = getServlet().getServletContext();

The Action class, which is an ancestor of your class has the getServlet() method that retrieves the instance of ActionServlet that called your Action class.
