Here userList(ArrayList) contains some 5000 elements and I am trying to use request.setAttribute("ListBean", userList); to display userList in JSP page.

will this work fine?
is there any disadvantage of using request.setAttribute?

please help me...

Using request.setAttribute ensures that the userList object is stored in request scope (i.e. will be visible in the JSP for example that the action forwards to). I would recommend using the source forge "display tag" to render the list on the jsp (http://displaytag.sourceforge.net/11/). this will automatically paginate your data, you can customise its look and feel also. it's very easy to use

you should never really be displaying excessive information on a jsp anyways, give the user a search facility to narrow it down or use display tag.

hope this helps - Ro.
