Manually passing RequestContext to JSP

Using Spring Webflow, I'm trying to get the output of a JSP for PDF generation (following the hints at http://blog.valotas.com/2011/09/get-output-of-jsp-or-servlet-response.html)

The normal redirection to JSP accepts a HttpServletRequest and a HttpServletResponse, but my Webflow JSP expects a Webflow RequestContext. (for commandnames e.g.)

I tried copying the attributes to the HttpServletRequest, but this will not fully work, as the commandName of a form is not available.

Is there any recommended way to manually pass a webflow context to a jsp?

I don't understand. If you are outputting a PDF, why are you using a JSP? (instead of a PDF library)

If you are dealing with a JSP, remember you can put anything you want in request.setAttribute(). Including those commands you mentioned.
