What happens when <c:set> is used as below ?

-What kind of object is stored in the attribute "userLevel"?
-How do we access members of "userLevel" individually?

Hi Cyril,

-What kind of object is stored in the attribute "userLevel"?


In one String as an attribute of the HttpSession object -> HttpSession.setAttribute(userLevel, " Sheriff, Bartender, Cowgirl ")

-How do we access members of "userLevel" individually?


You can't as it is one String only

Regards,
Frits
