Hi,

Here is an example of what I want to achieve.

<jsp:setProperty name="someBean" property="someProperty" value="<%=session.getValue("someOtherProperty")%>"/>

Basically I want to assign to a bean property another property comming from the session object.

With the syntax from above, I keep getting an error message "Attribute someOtherProperty has no value".
However, if I replace the code from abobe with
<%=session.getValue("someOtherProperty")%>, I am getting printed the value of the someOtherPropery, which is OK.

Thanks.

or:

<%! String prop = session.getValue("someOtherProperty"); %>

<jsp:setProperty name="someBean" property="someProperty" value="<%= prop %>"/>

the only change to knightEknight's code I would make is
make the prop a local var.. whenever I use JSP declaration scriptlet I always run into scoping issues.

<% String prop = session.getValue("someOtherProperty"); %>

<jsp:setProperty name="someBean" property="someProperty" value="<%=prop%>"/>
