Hi,

I am setting a few session attribute in my action class


But when I try to retrieve them in jsp file, it returns null.
If I set the scope to "session" in struts-config.xml, then it works fine.

Can some one please explain this behavior and suggest a solution

Thanks
Aryan

If you are working on Session, you should use scope as session

The jsp that you are trying to retrieve the attribute from the session in, is it in the same request where you set the session attribute?

If it is then I have no guess. If its not then the problem may be that your application server is explicitly garbage collecting your form object at the end of the request (because its in request scope), even thought the user name is still being referenced in the session. Maybe it would work if you used a clone of the username instead of the actual object in the form. I'm guessing here but a simple .clone() might fix it so it might be worth a try.

I wonder if some application servers garbage collect request objects more thouroughly than others.

Maybe... because the same application works smoothly with Glassfish application server but not tomcat 5 or 6.

Finally I settled down to use Glassfish.
